Announcement   Welcome to Arcade56!

All photographs made by me were made on 35mm film with two old Nikons.
The photographs on wood are photo transfers that are covered in a non-toxic varnish.

The collage / mixed media / assemblage pieces are found objects, primarily vintage, on either new substrates (e.g., wood panels) or small, sturdy boxes.

All pieces are OOAK and cannot be duplicated, so anything you purchase from my shop is truly one of a kind.

The photographs from Romania are from the Costică Acsinte Archive.Costică Acsinte was a Romanian war photographer born on July 4th, 1897. He participated as a volunteer in the war to unite the Romanian nation and attended Aviation School. After his discharge, he opened a photo studio and continued taking pictures until his death on January 7th, 1984.

Most of Costică Acsinte’s work was aquired by Ialomița County Museum in the early 1990s. The museum was founded in 1968 in Slobozia City, Ialomița County, Romania, and holds over 25,000 artifacts in different fields including history, archaeology, ethnography, and art. The Costică Acsinte Archive is a colaborative project between the museum and Cezar Popescu, a 37 year old photography enthusiast who collects old black and white analog photographic formulas.

The Archives main objective is to digitize all the photographic work consisting of around 5000 glass negatives and a small selection of prints. Since these photographs were made during the communist occupation of Romania, there are owned by no person. The archive requests that if you use the photos, that attribution be given to the Costică Acsinte archive.

A percentage of all sales of the Romanian photographs will be donated to Izidor Ruckel, an advocate for Romanian orphans. See his website at: http://izidorruckel.com/

About

Still Making Photos with 35mm Film

As a 35mm film photographer, I wanted to use recycled and other wood surfaces for my photography. I love the way transferred film photographs look on wood, and also love that they are 'ready to use', requiring no framing or matte.

My collage and mixed media artwork are inspired by found objects and my love of painting.

Thank you for stopping by and having a look around!
