Ultra Large Format Portraits

The camera used to make these images is a 20" x 24" Ultra Large Format View Camera with a 1 to 1 focal length, and a telephoto lens. Orthochromatic Film was utilized to capture these images and processed in paper trays in paper chemistry under a safelight. Processing the film like this aloud me to see the latent image on film become visible. Originally the camera was used by The Miltonvale Record in Cloud County, Kansas.
