Studio projects Tuesday February 21 2012 11:37 am
New York photographer Craig Cutler is nearing the end of CC52, his year-long series of weekly personal projects, and has chosen to shoot #49 at Lead Graffiti in our Newark, Delaware letterpress studio. It is interesting to watch Craig dig through our cabinets and shelves, reminding us of the beauty in our everyday objects and things stuck in corners attracting ever thickening layers of dust and spider webs.
It was satisfying to share our cathedral of wood & metal type with Craig’s reverence for film. Craig is shooting in black / white and color on 4 x 5 and an exhibition celebrating his creative journey is planned for New York in May.
Below is a photo taken by Jeff Cate who was assisting on the project showing Ray and Tray dismantling the day’s first set-up composed from our 96 point Caslon foundry metal type.
We’ll be sure to announce when the images from the Lead Graffiti shoot are online which should be around March 8th.
This is a photograph of Craig working with some found type from our ‘hell box’.
