Norma Forss -  Portriat lady with statue001

This is a picture taken around 1945 or so. The portrait of a lady (Donna Wynbrandt)standing by a table was taken with my Ziess Icon camera this February in 2013 !

I am going to offer a price for a portrait like this for $100. This will be a package price involving the picture taking (8 shots on a 120 roll of film) a proof print and a final 11 x 14 print.
I can do this quickly in your home or elswhere and I can e mail the proofs. The final print can be mailed or picked up at my gallery or mailed to you.

Forss – Portriats – 1945 – 2013

G Forss  Portrait of Donna 001 small size I think I accomplished what I set out to do. I now have a camera and technique that I can use to take portraits the way that my mom did. I am using a 1937 Ziess Icon folding camera with a 105 tessar lens on it. This camera uses the same negative size and has the same scope as my mother’s box camera pictures. Here are two samples …

George Forss – Farm field in the snow

16 Feb

I made this panorama picture by stitching eight single frame images together. This is a good way to create a panorama picture that does not show the kind of distortions you will see when you use an extreme wide angle lens. My ideal is to not see the lens that took a picture. I just want to see the subject.
I can make a digital print of this image on Epson digital printing paper that is 13 x 19 inches stock for $125. The image on this paper will be about 10 x 19 inches.

George Forss – The Sullen Spirit Face of God

6 Feb

I like this image. It was taken with a Canon Rebel film camera. I like the basic zoom optic of this camera. I also use the same optic for my Canon EOS 5d camera. I imagine getting a lens like this and a fine camera for $69 on E bay. I like film cameras.

I have a great poem for this image from my self published book “Enos”. It is called “The Sullen Spirit face of God”

Here it is. Look out …

The Subject of the Sullen Spirit Face of God

Of all the individualistic things that have forged
themselves into being
that we can see . . .
some have something to do with the one face of God.
The Sullen Spirit Face of God.
These will have an expression of God about them
that is unchanging.
These are everywhere.
It is the expression of God in all things.
These are from the very beginning of a love
coming from our great God in this universe.
This is the presence of God that is manifested upon all
things and the things that are made by our hand as well.

The expression that this Sullen Spirit Face has
is always virtuous.
It is never defeated nor burdened.
Its head is always upward facing with a
thrusting forward stare.
You can travel anywhere in the universe
and you will see these . . .
heads with faces . . .
They are not looking at you.
They will be looking beyond you.

This is the face of God
though it will assume many profiles.
This is the face of God.

In the beasts, it is showing at those times
when the beast is victorious
and when it is at peace within its deserved lot.

The spirit of God is within you then.
It will show itself rightly in your physical form
when you are righteous.
It is unchanging over your time in life . . .
after all your endeavors . . .
and although you may be beaten and forlorn
it will show itself in your remaining ardor
if you are, at least, purely loved.

Below is some commentary from the Aliens in this book about the writing in this book and about the face of God.

Alien YES THIS WHOLE REPORT IS ACTUALLY A PROLONGED POEM. IT IS ALL OF A STRAINED CONTENT THAT COULD NOT BE REVEALED IN ANY OTHER WAY. IT IS ALL FOR YOU SO THAT THIS WRITING SHOULD REMAIN INTACT WITH ONLY MINOR NECESSARY CORRECTIONS BUT WITH NO CHANGE TO ITS CONTENT.

YOU WILL SEE THE FACE OF GOD EVERYWHERE. YOU WILL SEE FACES . . . YOU WILL SEE THEM. . . A HEAD. . . WITH TWO EYES, A NOSE AND MOUTH. . . AND THESE WILL HAVE THE THRUSTING STARE. ALL FRONTS OF ANYTHING CAN BE THIS
FACE. YES, EVEN THE HEAD OF A MALE BEING’S PENIS IS A FACE ! A BUS HAS A FACE. AUTOMOBILES HAVE HEADLAMPS FOR EYES.

Note: I have books to sell for $20. and $35. (hard cover)
I also can send this book via an E mail for free. You will get an Adobe Reader version of “ENOS” plus a wordpad file version.

The photo image is availble as a digital print @ $125. (11 x 14 size) printed on Epson paper with long lasting Epson ink.
