Searching for Janis…

Most of the negative strips in these two contact sheets have gone astray and the search is on for the Lost Janis Joplin Images.

A transparency scanner and Photoshop CS5.1 make it possible to rescue images that just couldn’t be printed well in a darkroom. For me, at least. I was never patient enough to get really good at printmaking.

A close inspection of the film tells me I was shooting bulk-loaded Tri-X that night.
