Feature Article & Movie: Large Format Photography of Stéfane France - Arenberg France
I am excited to share the large format work of Stéfane France with you. Stéfane photographed the former coal mine and miners of Arenberg in the north of France with his 8x10 view camera using a Rodenstock 360 lens on HP5+ sheet film developed in D23. I can see the effects of the soft developer in the high contrast images. D23 was an excellent choice for this project.
There is a total of 21 plates in this body of work and you can view all of them on Stéfane's website. Notice the large format sheet film notches in the corner of the images...
Director Guillaume Levis, created a short film of Stéfane working that I know you will enjoy. Sit back and take a 10 minute break to enjoy watching Stéfane create his art.
