I could BS you dear reader, about how this mini portfolio of black and white photographs are about my take on the duality of man, or about how my many years spent loading and unloading thousands of feet of 35mm color negative motion picture film as a camera assistant in the movie business, inspired me to make this work.  I have to admit that all sounds pretty good, but mostly I’m posting these images because I just like them better in negative.

To try something different a few months ago, I inverted some black and white images – just to see what would happen. Out of roughly thirty images, only a couple worked in negative. But I like what I saw enough to try a few more.

So the lesson for me is that inverting black and white images is fairly easy but it doesn’t work very often. When it does work though, it has the potential to transform an image into something more interesting.

I need to experiment more often.
