    Apology portraits

    Regardless of which side of the politics you fall on, I just think that these are just some very cool portrait/landscape pairings.
    On no less than LF with expired film, the colours definitely give some ethereal qualities to the work:

    and more work here: http://www.aletheiacasey.com/ (but the website only half works for me)

    Very interesting. Thanks. I went to her website. Is it me or are many of her images not focused properly or blurry where it seems they should not be? Maybe bad scans?

    Well, I managed to get it working on my work laptop, must be an issue with my PC at home.
    Still, the gallery marked 'Australians' is password protected, so can't see any more of them (actually edit: there's a gallery called 'After the Apology', that's where more of the portrait/landscapes are).
    Interesting that they're square, and include the rebate showing 'Fujifilm RDP' (II or III, can't tell) on a lot of them. So maybe the BBC mixed up LF and MF, or there's some cropping (but somehow not on the edge with the markings), or it's just one of those instant-borders added after scanning. Or maybe I shouldn't try to figure it out and just accept them for the really nice shots that they are, I love number 9 of the beach.

    Just on the blurriness, I did notice that there's some in-browser resizing going on, that generally makes photos blurrier, so that could be it (although the first few in the 'portraits' gallery have some heinously wafer-thin DOF going on, even a bit of tilt it looks like, and there's a few that are dfinitely just OOF, whether intentional or not).

    I do also like this one though, perfect timing on the pigeon.

    That is a good one with the pigeon.

    This gallery has some real focus issues for me: http://www.aletheiacasey.com/remains-of-hasankeyf#1

    "Real focus issues"??
    None of the images are out of focus or poorly focus; there is a very skillful use of limited (context) focus, swing and very shallow depth (effective for isolation) that is all too rarely seen in quality LF work that tends to be monotonously sterile and clinical. As an adventure in the use of expired colour media, it is outstanding. The 6x6 format works beautifully for the portfolio (which is of course not restricted to this one). At the best of times it is very difficult to photograph indigenous Australians but Aletheia is no newcomer to this and has a real empathy and understanding that shows through her images. I consider Aletheia's work to be exceptionally well crafted and executed and a call-out for taking large format studies to a higher and greater subconscious level — very especially where people are involved in the telling of a story.

    The gallery isn't working for me at all (I'm on dialup) but I liked the samples in the article a lot.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.

    I did not understand those image couples neither before nor after reading the article.

    This may help.
