Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco presents Dan Root Quadratis black and white photography project, on exhibit now

About the "Quadratis" project:

For each print in the "Quadratis" series, I've exposed one square negative in four orientations on a single sheet of traditional photography paper. I've spent the past year searching out subject matter in the urban and natural environment that would lend itself well to this op(tical)-art effect. I force the perspective through the viewfinder and visualize the final result while composing the photograph, and then I print the image full-frame with minimal cropping. Photographing this way has been an interesting exercise for me, especially with the precise darkroom work required to make the four exposures match. What I find most satisfying is seeing the final image for the first time as it rises from the white paper in the developer tray. The result is always different than what I anticipated. This is an ongoing project, and I hope to have 100+ images in the "Quadratis" series upon its completion.
