A photograph is worth a hell of a lot more than a thousand words…

Checkmate

checkmateThis was part of a project that never really got off the ground. It was supposed to be a series about relationships and interpersonal conflict. The chessboard was going to appear in all of the images, but I had trouble in that some of the images simply looked contrived.

I am however, pleased with this photograph as a stand alone piece. Note the female figure topeling the King…isn’t that they way it always goes?

This is a copy stand photograph of the final (one of a kind) print.

35mm Illford PanF 50ISO, developed in Kodak D76, Printed with Dektol, bleached via mordancage, and partially redeveloped with exhausted Kodalith.
