Historic Greek Orthodox


This photograph is of the historic Holy Cross Greek Orthodox church in Flagstaff, Arizona.

It is print from an actual film negative scan. The camera used was a art-deco faced 1933 Kodak Jiffy folding camera. It is a medium format camera made to take 616 film. With modification, regular 35mm film was used for this photo. Because this is a smaller film format, the film was able to be exposed over the sprocket holes found on the edges of 35mm negatives. Expired Fuji film was used on this subject which produced the interesting coloring.


Custom designed frame. This frame concept is created from antique thread spools (bobbins) from an old textile mill. The high resolution negative scan is directly printed onto metal. The dyes are infused directly into a specially coated aluminum sheet causing the images take on an almost magical luminescence.

Each wooden display is unique in its own way. They have been left in their vintage state to reflect the subject matter. This includes varying degrees of weathering, slight chips, tarnish, and paint specs.
