This is one of the images from my 'Portal' series as non-silver prints that I presented in my final senior studio course for my part-time BFA (finished in 2013.. at the ripe old age of 73). Some nearby wooden 100+ year-old farm buildings that became my subjects of interest while still in use.... but not quite near the end of their lifespan. Their well weathered exteriors, having lost their paint (if they ever had any)... have become somewhat deteriorated.. but many of these buildings still contain the old discarded and unused objects that never made it to the dump when no longer of use. I photographed the doors and windows that allow 'physical' access... and natural light. Films used were FP4 and Tmax100 processed in Pyrocat-HD in BTZS tubes. Camera was Linhof monorail with 240mm Rodenstock Sironar.
