What happens after a film is exposed?
Since time and again project participants are asking the very reasonable question why it takes so long for me to provide some imagery for review, I wanted to describe with a sample story what happens after I did expose a roll of film for the project's collection.
Since April 2017 a new publication with the title In Canadian Workspaces is out. It is not yet the final and comprehensive book I am striving for, but a smaller publication well printed on excellent paper in duotone. It contains a distinguished selection of photographs from the production years 2011-2016. The image sequences on the 32 pages are arranged according to different relations between person and workspace, taking the viewer on a journey throughout the Canadian provinces. The number of photographs in the book represent about one-hundredth of the project's collection that would be suitable for publication.
Letters from the 2016 WorkSpace Canada post production II
After 5 months of constant film processing I am happy to announce that nearly all film rolls are developed. I recently began with the production of contact sheets. The total number of films from last year's production is 210. Therefore it will take again some time to get contact sheets done for all these films.
Welcome to the WorkSpace Canada Blog. I decided to set up this platform for having a way to keep in touch with all the people who participated in the WorkSpace Canada project since its beginning in 2006. During this year’s intense production a large number of Canadians newly got involved - which was the occasion to finally launch this blog. It is meant for just anybody who is interested in the project’s photography, for photographed people who are curious about their own pictures and for the supporters who helped and guided me throughout the years.
