Maine
by Gary Briechle
"Utilizing large-format cameras, he produces extraordinarily beautiful silver-gelatin prints, made from collodion negatives which he painstakingly coats and processes on-site in the trunk of his car or in his sitter’s bathroom. While working with this slow, cumbersome equipment, in collaboration with his usual family of subjects, he often has a small camera slung around his neck, simultaneously capturing fractions of a second in color. To be clear, he is photographing with both cameras at once. Employing a working practice that I suspect might make most photographers mad, Gary celebrates the “cross-pollination” he feels this method provides. It is the color work that comprises his remarkable second monograph, Maine, produced with publisher Jack Woody, who completed the narrative with smart editing and sequencing. The photographs from Maine are often darkly beautiful, suggestive but never illustrative, combining fantastical moments with harsh details of reality. "
