ANALOG, LARGE FORMAT PHOTOGRAPHS

A large part of my Fine Art Photography Collection is the complete opposite of what I do in my commercial work: it is slow, quiet, analog, painting like and mostly wide spaces. Discovering places while driving with my 1965 Plymouth Barracuda, I create painting like photographs with multiple exposures. I am using a large format analog 4x5 inch camera and analog film to create my photographs. The film is processed and scanned. The photographs are getting cleaned of dust and color adjusted. No other alternation is being performed. The final art pieces are oversized Kodak prints behind acrylic glass, floating on the wall. 

Jared Della Valle, architect, developer and art collector in New York about my 4x5 series: 
"We were looking for just the right art for our public spaces at 185 Plymouth/NY and found them with Poby’s ethereal photos of the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Navy Yard. Both the multiple exposure and scale of these photographs draws you in and connects you to the industrial history of the Brooklyn waterfront. They remind me of why I fell in love with Brooklyn 20 years ago."

NEW YORK EXHIBIT at CHEFS CLUB

Chefs Club, NY is one of the leading restaurants in New York City. With its unique concept of inviting the best chefs from all over the world to perform at Chefs Club for a week, it is always a new adventure to eat here. Needless to say, I am super thrilled to have the opportunity to show my art here as an artist in residence.  On Sept 20th I had my reception and it was just beyond my imagination.  An evening filled with art, wonderful talks, smiles, laughs and happiness. What a location to have an exhibit opening! Not the usual plastic cup and cheap wine, rather best french champaign with oysters and other excellent little bites. Stephane and his whole crew were absolutely fantastic and spoiled everyone who came to see my large format photographs. Even an extra menu was created for this evening ( see below ).

I selected four motifs of my series 'The Barracuda Driver'. These are a painting like photographs created with multiple exposures on 4x5 large format reversal film. The photographs are printed on Kodak paper and mounted behind acrylic glass to float on the walls. All photographs are limited editions and come in different sizes.
