Another freshly scanned ancient film image, this one’s from an October 1989 (by my count, just a few days before the Loma Prieta/SF earthquake) full moon nightshoot, in the oil fields around Coalinga, CA, with my brother Tom. It was a very formative night of shooting. Pretty sure access is strict in them thar hills now, but back then […]
Heavily customized and cannibalized first-generation Camaro. Candy paint, pinstripes and crushed velvet, now rotten. Fit for the queen of the dead, “Every Girls Dream” is painted in the back window. Night, full moon, Protomachines flashlight, composite of two exposures (the sunroof lighting).
Great news from London! All my prints currently on display at the Heist Gallery in Kensington sold, for £700 each, and I’m told some important collectors are taking notice. Wow. Maybe those cheap 8x10s you bought over the last few years might be worth something someday! Thanks for all your support over the the last […]
It might look like an ICBM pointed at the enemy, but everybody should just relax. It’s really just a fisheye ’61 Caddy fin, poised on a pile of parts at the Junkyard of the Gods. Night, 1:40 AM, 167-second exposure. Red and purple-set Protomachines flashlight.

For all the Bob’s out there. I keep thinking I see “Robot” Driver . . . It’s a 1953 De Soto Powermaster, mildly hot rodded/customized in the ’60s and then left untouched in the bitchenest junkyard for a few decades. Night, 121-second exposure. Fish-eye lens. Full moon. Warm white from 2 directions, purple from one. Protomachines […]
One of about 150 Chrysler Imperials at my favorite junkyard, from last winter. Fisheye-lens from about a foot away. Night, 55-second exposure, under by 2+ stops, to keep the scene dark and let the lighting pop. Blue from straight down, indirect red, bounced off the ground, warm white snooted into the lights. Protomachine flashlight.
