The sun is shining, it looks like a wonderful day.
The Above photo is from my trip to Tanzania in 2007. This past weekend I finished the Ewin McGregor and Charles Boorman TV documentary The Long Way Down. It is an adventure story of these men traveling from England to the tip of South Africa on their BMW motor bikes.
Their travels through through Africa, especially Kenya and Tanzania, so very much reminded me of my adventure in Tanzania. Meeting and working with amazing people. The sounds and smells were coming back to me along with some faint tastes.
It was great watching someone else’s adventure, connecting with it and understanding some of the emotions that they went through during the process.
If you are unfamiliar with my book Eyes of Tanzania I now have it available as a PDF ebook here.
It has been over 20 years since I had my first one man show. The show had a lot of very different images in it, but they were all based around the black and white images that I was printing at my home. A lot of the images were looking at ways to push black and white images beyond what they were and so I started coloring them with inks.
Bringing this all to modern day, I have been experimenting with some new tools, this image is my first test on understanding how the digital inks respond to the contrast and shadows of my images.
