This is the "real" portrait of Sadie Hennessy, visual artist and promoter of some wonderful and quirky vaudeville functions in this sleepy coastal town we call home.
I call it real in quotation marks because the previously published portrait was taken in digital format and I wanted it to be known that my faith lies elsewhere.
I have a great belief in my negatives and this image is proof of the quality and beauty found in the shadows and half-tones present in light, etc. from images rendered in traditional formats.
Biased I am, of course, after forty years of printing in darkroom the portraits I admire, and this one, it must be said, is one of them.
