Yashica Mat 124G and Tmax 400 film
I shoot these images because I’m in love with the American West. It’s the challenge of romanticizing every forgotten dusty byway, abandoned town and savage desert. It drives me.
My camera of choice is the Yashica Mat 124G. It’s simple and sharp as a tack. I soup my own negs and scan them myself. I have rules of thumb for compensating exposure in the field but never overdevelop my films to the point where I can’t read a newspaper through them. The magic is in the thin negative. I don’t keep exposure records because I read photographs.
