Phun with Photons. An assignment in NYC.

Some images from a job at Primary Packaging in New York. Spend a couple days photographing pack printing.  Medium format camera with 50mm, 80mm and 150mm lenses.  Tri-X film.  Leitz Tiltall Tripod.  No lights.  The images are scans from prints.  The prints are not direct copies of what is on the negatives.  They were "interpreted."  The art director was not looking for "literal".


  1. Love these photos. I had the questionable pleasure of working with similar printing machines for six months in 1998-1999. The photos make it seem much more romantic without the noise and smell :)

  2. I'm laughing because I remember the noise but I have to confess that I love the smell...

    1. Chanel "Eau de Printing Ink"?

      I'd buy it.
