American West, c 1962, Unretouched Kodachrome slide photo by William C. Hinson
When I’m not shepherding images into the digital archive you see here, I am a front end web designer who works especially well with individuals or organizations that specialize in photography, design, or other visual media. Originally, I began my studies in web design to further my interest in creating visual archives and making them available to the public. I designed a subdomain of janelamotte.com to showcase the abundance of original photography available to my friends and clients. I called it Art Field for reasons that I hoped would resonate with anyone who embraced web development as a journey. The site is styled as a blog, representing the work of three generations of photographers in my family.
An online store opened at Art Field in the summer of 2018. The images that I make available there were chosen more for their artistic merit than their historical significance, even though many of them do capture scenes of a past that is all but gone except in photos like these. At Art Field, I keep the edge of the slide mounting visible on most files because it helps to keep the image in its context, the way you would see them projected on a screen or a wall in your childhood living room.
If you love the images at Art Field as much as I do, I think you will be transported…preferably to somewhere warm and cozy.
One thought on “More images are available to download at Art Field”
The inventory of the Archive store has surpassed that of the Art Field store, but Art Field is still a vital part of the overall mission!
