    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Saddened by the destruction caused by the recent bushfires in Australia I decided to revisit some of the 8x10 negatives I made when living in part of the affected area during the 80s. This place was the centre of the universe for me, being close to pristine coast, cool temperate rainforests and only a short drive to the Australian Alps. From what I can ascertain very little has remained untouched by the fires. As well as 8x10s I also have 6x6 negs from the 80s and 4x5s from subsequent revisits to the area. I doubt that I will see it in anything like that condition again. The following are contact prints made on Ilford MGFB Warmtone developed in ID-78. Unfortunately the huge scans have suffered greatly in their reduction for web viewing, but that's life. My homage to a once beautiful country.

    1 & 2. Podocarpus aff. lawrenci, Errinundra Plum Pine. Known from only a few locations in the Errinundra Plateau region, these few small groups of trees are the only remnants from the time when Tasmania was joined to the Australian mainland at the time of the last ice age. (Two views: 480mm Rodenstock Apo-Ronar, FP4 at ASA 64, Rodinal 1+50)

    3. Cliff, The Sisters (also known as Three Sisters). A rocky escarpment formed by uplifting of Devonian sediments, and dramatic in presence. The front standard had to be raised to such an extent that a shadow occurs at the bottom of the neg, from upper bellows. (480mm Rodenstock Apo-Ronar, FP4 at ASA 25, ABC Pyro.)

    4. Clematis aristata, Mountain Clematis, can be found climbing into the crowns of tall forest trees. A beautiful sight, as I saw last November when I traveled through the area. I resolved to return with some cameras in Spring 2020, but alas what I saw is sadly no longer there. It'll return, but not in my lifetime. This specimen was climbing well into the crown of a Mountain Ash tree. (Tri-X at ASA160, 480mm Apo-Ronar, HC110 1+15.)

    5. Vine stems on forest floor. (FP4 at ASA50, Kodak 10" Commercial Ektar, D7 developer.)

    6. Mountain Clematis on log. These wonderful plants climb and scramble over everything and are a truly beautiful sight. (FP4 at ASA50, 480mm Apo Ronar.)

    7. Morinda jasminoides, Jasmine Morinda. Another example of botanical diversity in temperate rainforests. This one in Lind National Park. (TXP at ASA160, 10" Commercial Ektar, HC110 1+15.)

    8. Forest Regrowth. Three years after the 1983 fires in the area, this patch of bush is regenerating nicely. But it takes time. Fire-killed trees remain standing as stark reminders of what has passed. (FP4 at ASA64, 10" Commercial Ektar, D7 Pyro.)

    I've now realised how wide the 90mm is on a 4*5... My shadow definitely wasn't supposed to be in this shot of the Red Rock Conservation Area. Sir on Fomapan 100.

    A great project--I've not experienced such total devastation, but we recently lost a few thousand acres of old growth here in the Smoky Mountains in a watershed I know well. As you say, it's all a bit depressing when viewed from a human time horizon, but I hope you'll find cause for optimism in the upcoming years.

    Grand Canyon North, Surise Storm at Point Imperial. Portra 160, 75mm, 3 stop reverse grad nd. I'm not happy with the yellow and red sun highlights. I have a couple other versions of this. I may go back and just clone out since this is art and not documentary.

    Great to see those images, Barry. I've spent many days on the Errinundra Plateau and surrounding forests. Grant Da Costa and David Tatnall's work in Gippsland in the 80's were one of my major inspirations for getting into photography seriously and shooting Large Format.

    It's been heartbreaking to see the impact of the fires throughout East Gippsland, let alone the rest of the east coast.

    Looking forward to seeing what else you have in the archives

    All the best,
    M

    Steven, I find almost all of your Canyon shots wonderful. The "problem" I have is that the critiques, and your own concerns, seem to concentrate on post-processing (color balance in PhotoShop or similar). The images themselves are great!
