I get lots of question regarding my “Entropic” process I use in my developing process to make my unique black and white prints. Most folks think Entropy is only about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. But for me it’s the fundamental law of the universe that affects everything in the universe including time. Thanks to the folks at minutephysics who give a very quick, fun and easy explanation of why this is true and why this plays such a huge part in my darkroom process which you can see here and here. It’s important to understand my prints look the way they do only because of Entropy as the silver particles are being torn to bits by the time I am done with them. My prints are literally getting destroyed in the very act of creating them. They are all but small maps of the universal constant we all experience every day.

By making it personal photographer Nick Bowers along with Celine Faledam and Rachel Guest interviewed and photographed a group of scientists about climate change. If the conversations don’t scare the hell out of you nothing will. The web site, http://scaredscientists.com piece was picked up on Huffington Post as well.

As one scientist put it:
“One thing people need to remember, is that scientists are the biggest skeptics on Earth. We’re constantly trying to disprove each other. This is the one thing we agree on. The evidence is endless.”
