This is a shot of my buddy Ron O’Hare, who runs a publishing company, Rockit Werks. One day we were shooting some photos for a series of black and white fine art postcards we’ll be coming out with soon, and I asked Ron to sit in for a few impromptu portraits. (After all, the models can’t have all the fun!)
The post-production was intended to be reminiscent of one of my favorite pre-digital darkroom techniques, involving bleaching and toning the print as it comes out of the fixer, giving it a gritty, high-contrast look. The end result reminds me a little bit of that famous Albert Watson shot of Keith Richards.
