    Was running through an email from PhotoEye and came across an annoucement for Fraction Magazine and noted where Clay Harmon has a feature with his Telos images.

    Congratulations Clay.

    I may have to sneak into the Houston area after this...:surprised:

    Thanks for the link, photomc
    Love the feeling in the pictures which relates wonderfully to the bio and story behind the work.
    Well done Clay!

    Clay's work is rather amazing.

    Also, Polly Chandler is from Austin.

    Saw the Fraction add in today's photo-eye emailing as well. I've seen Clay's big Telos palladiums in person, really wonderful. I did like Polly Chandler's work as well.

    Actually, it was an Iceland connection. David Bram, one of the creators of this cool e-zine, was on the Schwab-ian Iceland trip in 2007. That trip still gets top prize on my list for having one of the most compatible groups of photographers who were ever randomly assembled. Very cool sort of karma at work back in April of '07.

    And thanks to all for the kind comments. This project has really begun to take shape. Who knew you could print 35mm Tmax3200 negs at 22x28 in palladium?

    These are great images Clay! I have this mental image of you stopping the car every half mile on the freeway, hopping out and taking pictures, with a queue of honking cars behind you!

    The process really suits them.

    (I feel a Lenswork folio coming on :smile:)
