University of Utah Book Arts – In Film!

In the fall, I spent a few days at the Marriott Library at the University of Utah photographing their pretty unique Book Arts Program, which allows students from all disciplines to study the process of making different types of books and then actually get to make those books in studio. The main essay I did was all digital (see: here), but I also had my trusty Canon A-1 film camera with a 50mm lens and a few rolls of Ilford HP5 black & white film. I read somewhere that under-exposing HP5 a stop or two really brings out the contrast when you compensate for exposure during development. So I did, and was impressed with the results of the contrast. However, the studio being pretty dim plus purposefully under-exposing my shots resulted in some grain. But overall, I’m happy with how the film part of the series came out. Take a look below and see for yourself. These are just a sample of the series images. You can see the whole thing on my Flickr page.
