CHRISTMAS CARDS by Tim Hixson ©

Continuing the photographic tradition of each year creating and sharing the Christmas spirit this series spans 40 years. The first picture, ‘Bondi Beach’ was a found image and inspired the subsequent use of the tree motif. All Black and Whites were hand printed and some used darkroom techniques such as multiple printing, flipped negatives, lith film overlays and lith printing. All of the colour images are made using plastic cameras and colour negative film. Number 10 Holga Xmas was shot and altered digitally. This selection is in rough chronological order and documents family life, political or climatic events of the time or just for the sheer fun of executing an idea. hixson@bigpond.net.au
