What About Me?!!!

Francis Schanberger is a teaching artist with a strong interest in the photograph as object and how the photograph is experienced by the viewer. He has been taking and making photographs ever since he was seven and he borrowed his sister’s Polaroid Square Shooter. His fourth grade science project was a long focal length pinhole camera that employed 126 cartridge color film. He currently works in several historical photographic processes such as Vandyke Brown, Cyanotype, and gum bichromate. His work is in the collections of museums in Denmark and the United States. He is an Artist-in-Residence at the University of Dayton in southwestern Ohio. This year he has been selected by the Ohio Arts Council to create work for the 2011 Governor’s Awards in the Arts.

  1. Hi Francis, I’m a photographer interested in print platinum/paladium in Tosa Washi paper. About 20 years ago I have the incredible experience of have in my hands a few platinum prints made on “rice paper” by Imogen Cunningham and her son. I’ve been obsessed with the idea of make my own. I’m impressed with you work and with your description of the process. The question is: how do you get the paper?, where you by it?. I’ve been searching the web for a supplier, but didn’t succeed. Can you give me any advice on the subject?
