"Major" by Foushee and Waller

8515-1 scan"Major", a giant statue of a bull located in the CCB Plaza on Corcoran Street in Durham, North Carolina, was erected in 2007 and was designed by Leah Foushee and Michael Waller. The spirit of fun radiated by the (one assumes) students riding the bull leaps out of the print. The photo was taken in December of 2015 with a Minolta X-570 35 mm SLR equipped with a 135 mm f/2.8 Minolta MD lens on Ilford FP4+ film. The negative was enlarged optically with a Beseler 23CIIXL enlarger and a 50 mm f/2.8 Schneider Componon-S lens on Ilford Multigrade FB Classic Double Weight Fiber Base silver gelatin photo paper. Processing was done archivally using Kodak chemistry, with a final toning with Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner, treated with hypo clearing agent, and washed in an archival washer.
