"Not Laura, but Lauro, a friend, fisherman, and gardener. He grows the perfect tulips and is free with them to his friends, who let them wither and fade, and then photograph them. (his two lovely daughters have been subjects for longer than Laura) This image is an indication of my current direction, revived from a period in the early 1980's where grain in color film was cool... I photographed many subjects - women, flowers, buildings, and still things - using the then popular Agfachrome RS1000. Nanessence and I used this film extensively in 1986 in a series of editorial fashion spreads and moved it to our art pieces shortly after. Sadly, this film is long gone, but, by using the graining effect of stiffer bromoil brushes and rough papers, a very similar effect can be had. Again, the freedom and variation of color in the out of focus background is quite important to me." (Chuck Kimball, August 2006)
