Plastic Fantastic V Show

I've got some show news to report so I'll start with this one. Happy to report that this image, "Before Spring", will be in the upcoming Plastic Fantastic V show at LightBox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, OR. This image was taken with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera with a flipped lens and fifty year expired "Rex" film. (Rex was the house brand film carried by Rexall drugstores for many years and was made in Belgium by Agfa Gevaert). The print is an alcohol gel ink transfer to paper. The process seems to work particularly well for this image. The Plastic Fantastic show will run from June 14 through July 7. Susan Burnstine was the juror for this year's show, as she has been for the past couple of years.  I'm particularly proud that I have participated in this show for each of it's five years.


  1. Congratulations, Jim! What an amazing image - I feel as if I'm swimming through a dream.

    1. Thanks Jacki. I had forgotten about this image until Ann selected it for the RayKo show. Now I'm glad she did.

  2. Congratulations! A GORGEOUS image!
