11. Teri and Debi Green, 1976
When I first walked into Taylor Camp with a camera and tripod everyone disappeared. I followed the trail from the road into the trees and through the village until I came to the treehouses along the beach. I heard a woman’s voice from above, “Hello! Can I help you?” It was Debi Green calling out to me through a screened window in The Big House.
“Hi. I’m the photography teacher at the College,” I explained, “and I’d like to do a photo documentary of the camp.”
“Great! Come on up.” said Debi. She introduced me to her sister, Teri, I did a series of photos that day including this one of the sisters (their camp nickname was The SinTwisters...). I returned the next weekend and gave them several 8 x 10 museum grade silver prints from our session. It soon turned into a party with neighbors coming over to see the prints and then asking me to visit their houses and photograph them. Within a few weeks I was keeping an appointment book for portraits.
Archival 19 x 12.875-inch inkjet photos printed on 22 x 17-inch Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta—a pure100% Cotton Fine Art paper, acid and lignin-free, with the classic look of analog darkroom prints. Each photograph is spray-coated to meet the most exacting archival requirements—sealing the print surface and protecting the photo from dirt, fingerprints, moisture, fading, airborne contamination, and ozone damage.
