These prints were shot between 1999-2004, a mixture of Joseph Rafferty’s Editorial Commissions & his Personal Work.
Printed by Joseph’s friend Michelle and Master Printer of A&I Photographic Laboratory in North Hollywood, CA. The two met circa 2001, Michelle had just printed entire show for American Photographer, Sallie Mann.
All prints from “LOST” disappeared in 2007 until 2018, when discovered by a child rummaging through obscure toy box.
These Toned RC Master Prints prints represent alternative printing processes, polaroid techniques from by gone era, usage of film now obsolete, and a overallunexpected unfamiliar mood/feel that Michele came up with tweaking out his chemistry to make something profoundly beautiful.
“LOST” images captured on Kodak Tri X Black & White Negative Film and Polaroid Type 55 Negative through analog cameras only: Small Format (35mm), Medium Format (6×7) and Large Format (4×5)
