FRAMES One evening while out with friends, we happened on a 24-hour bowling alley that looked like it had been frozen in time. I immediately became fascinated with the space; it was teeming with character and filled with stories of the people who spent time there rolling balls down lanes since the 1940's. Photos of '300 Club' members. Black and white portraits mixed with early color and new portraits on the Wall of Fame. A Karaoke lounge decked out in vintage 49er's memorabilia. A snack bar menu offering hungry bowlers a bite to eat. It was a magical place that quieted down in the wee hours of the morning, leaving a peaceful space to contemplate. Many of the workers claimed that it was haunted. Sadly, it has been closed down, now. But I'm glad that I had the opportunity to document it before it disappeared. I shot mostly at night with my 4x5 camera and sheet film over several months. Many of the images took over an hour to shoot, and I always shot two of each scene. (You never knew when you were going to need that second negative.) Some of the remaining prints from this series are traditional chromogenic prints that I was lucky enough to make on enlargers while living in the San Francisco | Bay Area. Prints are available in 23-1/4” x 19-3/4” size as either a traditional chromogenic print (hand-printed by the artist) or as a digital chromogenic print on Fuji Crystal Archive Lustre paper. Series is in an edition of 15.
