la mama

I love my mom! And I love making prints. Nuff said.

Last month I helped build a strawbale toilet. Together with a crew of mostly 50-somethings, I learned how to rethread, cut, stack, slip and plaster bales. We built a solid little structure in three days. (Check out the CA Strawbuilding Association if you’re curious for more info.) Recently, I started using the darkroom again – it’s been over 5 years – and these photos are some of my first efforts since then.
