OK, as a result of this thread I made my way over to Bill's studio in the South End here in Boston last night, for the First Friday open studios... Info on his location and website is on his sig, as you can see, but there I set eyes on a project he's been working on for a while- a series of prints (DRUM) scanned from negatives his grandfather shot as a missionary in China over more than 40 years.
I'd encourage anyone in the Boston area to get over there and see these pieces. It's really a unique opportunity. It was great seeing you (again, I think ), Bill, and that is some beautiful work you're doing! You're really fortunate, too, to have such a rich collection to work with- a rare glimpse into daily life in China in the early part of the 20th century.
Oh, and on topic- it's also a perfect use of a drum scanner and fluid mounting. (Older originals, possible damage, and delicate- scan 'em once and put them back into safe storage... )
Thanks for the opportunity to visit, Bill, and great work!
