Kim Blue Thunder
One of a series of portraits of Lakota schoolchildren made on the St. Francis reservation, St. Francis, South Dakota, 1982
As I refined my photographic style, I settled on a combination of film, developer and printing paper that produced rich, warm toned images suitable to my subject matter. All of these photos were shot on Kodak Tri-X film, developed in Agfa Rodinal and printed on double weight Protrega fiber based paper.They were archivally processed using two fixing baths, hypo clear, and two separate running water rinses. Since I view the negative as only the starting point in the printing process, all of my silver prints are extensively manipulated in the darkroom. Each of these prints is unique, and subtly different from others of the same image Protrega paper and Rodinal developer were discontinued by the manufacturer in the 1990s. Prints with this depth and full rich tonality will not be made again. Like the Autochrome color prints of the 1920s, these photos are artifacts of a bygone photographic process that can't be replicated today.
