D. B. Stovall will discuss his extensive collection of large format images. The images span from 1974-1983 and from 2006 to the present. Although some of these images were made in the 1974-1983 timeframe, Stovall started making images again in late 2006.
Large format, usually 4x5, is used for complete image control. The use of large format techniques also complements Stovall’s vision, as it provides a “slower way of seeing” that is particularly appropriate for these subjects. The medium is primarily color transparency, either Ektachrome E100VS or Fuji Velvia for the large format.
D. B. Stovall was born and raised in the Washington, D. C. area. His initial postsecondary education was in photography, and he graduated from RIT in the mid 1970s. He currently is a retired electrical engineer and will provide an introduction to the basics of color management as part of his presentation.
