I was just watching a wonderful video interview of Keith Carter on a Lynda.com course called “Narrative Portraiture: On Location in Texas with Keith Carter by Chris Orwig”.
Keith mentioned the ocular cancer in his left eye, and I saw him shooting with the Hassie and a strange lens that seemed to be a shorter focal length. The resulting prints were very soft and distorted, perhaps by the lens, or maybe done in his darkroom. I didn’t realize that he was making these photos to interpret his left eye vision.
That Lynda.com course was very interesting, and I think I’ll watch parts of it again. Thanks for posting this.
