    Tillman Crane

    I just visited an exhibition of Tillman Crane photographs in Rockland ME. Just about the complete works of his Pt/Pd "Odin Stone" series is on display plus some of the older "Structure" images are shown. Nicely displayed. It is interesting to see both series side by side because you get a sense of how his vision of things with structure also permeates the more recent "Odin Stone" works from The Orkney Islands in Scotland. The "Odin Stone" work is softer than I imagined from his book of the same. Many of the images are fragments of scenes and so work well when viewed as a whole.

    If you happen to be in the area you really should drop by. Johnathan Frost Gallery, 21 Winter St. Rockland ME. July 15 to August 15. I think the work is usually on display in Camden at a gallery that represents him - maybe on Pearl Street.

    I'm envious Nathan.

    I've always hoped to meet tillman and possibly see his work in the flesh.
    "Structure" is likely at the top of the list as a favorite.

    I met Tillman a few years ago at Photo San Francisco... 2005 I believe it was. His photography is something to behold and is QUITE gorgeous. I've spoken with Tillman a number of times, he's a gentleman and one of the more aggressive people out there when it comes to marketing his work and making his name known. I think the photography world needs more Tillman Cranes.

    I've been fortunate to see a fair amount of Tillman Cranes work. He had a terrific exhibit in his home town of Decatur, Alabama a few years back shown at an old Carnegie Library. I drove 5 hours from Georgia just to see this show. You can see a few of those images here:

    In that exhibit I was surprised to see an albumen print, a 5x12, though I can't recall the subject. It was the only one in the show but it was a very nice print and looked quite a bit different than his palladium work.

    Prior to that he some of his prints for his book Structure at APIS one year along with a lot of other prints. Most of the work he showed at APIS was also very nice.

    His work is worth seeing if you get a chance.
