#39 Wayne Martin Belger; Skulls On Tripods The Large Format Photography Podcast

    • Visual Arts

A student of linguistics and comparative religion led Wayne to follow a path to investigate the roots of beliefs, passions and truths as told through alternative and historic forms of communication.
“Wayne is an unconventional fine art photographer that uses historical artifacts and processes as his medium to build intricate functional analogue cameras that are hand-tooled from blocks of metal, and used to engage with underservices communities, highlighting current social and humanitarian issues”
Today Wayne lives and works in a converted 1940s diaper washing factory in the dusty border town of Tuscon Arizona.
 
Things we chatted about on the show:
 
Sorry about the mad link (there is a way to smarten this up)
Heather Oelklaus and “Little Miss Sunshine”.
