I have always had great respect for the folks who craft things with their hands. It's why I love the process of traditional black and white film photography so much- it feels more like a craft.
Handmade is a project documenting the artist's tools- the hands that make the art. The portraits are also made by hand, using traditional black and white film and hand processed in my darkroom.
This project was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
