Caleb Jagger and Farm Worker Portraiture

Caleb Jagger, Fort Davis, has been working on an art project since the summer of 2014 photographing farm harvests in the American Southwest. He started this project “because farm workers and people that harvest the food that we eat, don’t get enough respect and are not represented.” Jagger has visited over a dozen farms and taken over 360 portraits of people harvesting fruits and vegetables, from oranges to onions. All ages are encouraged to attend.

Jim Bones and Dye Transfer Printing

Jim Bones, Alpine, will demonstrate the ancient art of dye transfer printing, a technique derived from the Technicolor motion picture film process developed in the 1930s. From the 1940s, until Kodak quit making materials in 1994, it was the premier photographic color print process. Jim began making prints for Eliot Porter in 1975, and continued to use stored supplies for his own work until 2005. Three primary colored dye images, cyan, magenta and yellow, are each applied by a delicate sponge-like matrix, one after another, to a single sheet of white paper, to make a complete image. The actual “rolling” of the print is performed in full light, in a wet tray, darkroom environment. He will roll one straight print, and then roll a second modified version to show basic color control techniques. All ages are encouraged to attend. “Dye transfer prints are simply without peer. They have a richness, depth, and fidelity unmatched by any other kind of photographic print. They can show extraordinary subtlety of tone and hue, combined with a brightness range of 500:1 from blackest black to whitest white. Nothing else comes close to the magnificence of a dye transfer print.“ Ctein, Master Dye Transfer Printer

Downtown Alpine Morning Photo Tour with Caneel Cardwell

Join Caneel Cardwell, Alpine, for a morning tour of Alpine, Texas. Photographers will meet Caneel at 6:30 am in the parking lot across from Murphy Street Raspa Company, 100 W. Murphy Street, for a photo tour of the downtown area. Photo hikers will walk up to Baines Park, then pass Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church. The tour will continue down Murphy Street and into the downtown area. IMPORTANT: the group will be crossing over the train tracks ONLY when there is NO TRAIN IN SIGHT OR IT IS A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY. IT IS ILLEGAL TO STOP ON THE TRAIN TRACKS TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS. There will be ample opportunities to take photos of the tracks as the group walks along. Photo hikers will be walking by the depot and the railroad park, and either – or both – of those locations are great spots to take photos safely and within the law. Photographers are highly encouraged to wear comfortable hiking type shoes/boots and to dress for being outdoors and to bring a bottled water. This is a moderately strenuous hike.
