The Last Word by David Humphreys
“Time Segmented” is personal work by food, fashion, fine art
and commercial photographer David Humphreys (see Lorraine
DarConte’s article about him beginning on page 24). For the original
shots he used a Sinar P2 4x5 view camera with a Rodenstock
Sironar N 210mm f/5.6 lens with Polaroid Type 59 film. Nine
Polaroids were printed directly onto Epson Watercolor paper to
form one cohesive image.
Although his primary subject matter these days is food, he
always makes time for personal work, which keeps him fresh. He
religiously scours a wide variety of sources for the latest trends
in photography and likes to experiment with different technical
approaches. During such sessions his “experimentation” collides
with his own style and sense of seeing things and often produces
remarkable images such as this one.
