American Suicide

American Suicide

Based on media coverage of addiction and self-destructive tendencies that plague our country.  The goal for this work was to choose stories from nightly news with Dan Rather and create a still image that depicted the problem without resolution portrayed through the media lens.  The technique of cross processing E-6 film in C-41 chemistry was used to get the grade in these images. All work was shot on medium format 6 x 7 film with a Mamiya RZ.
