    How about an old U shaped bulb, like kitchen fixtures from the '60s.

    There are larger and smaller versions of these bulbs, but this one above is a reasonable example.

    The picture is taken from between the legs of the bulb.

    The bulb holding fixture is probably modified to keep flare out of the lens.

    Or a modified dental light.

    The camera catches light. The photographer catches life.

    I really don't see anything unconventional about these photographs that would lead me to believe they're anything other than panchromatic b&w film.

    The comment about tonality seems to be the most telling. Those early processes were all "color-blind", or highly blue/UV sensitive, and you just don't get this kind of rendition without a panchro emulsion. At least that's my belief on the matter.

    Getting a hold of photographers, or certainly someone that would know should not be difficult. I had an email conversation with Jerry Spagnoli once. You might get one chance to ask your question, but it should be possible. It's not like he's hiding the process from the public. Find a gallery owner who has it, email his assistant...

    For those who say to reach out to the photographer: reaching the president would be easier....


    I dont see that weird wax figure look in skin on the first or third image, but I do in the other two. Very unique look, but not attractive to me.
