Ron Jude

Ron Jude

Work from Alpine Star.

"Photographer Ron Jude selected images from The Star News, a local newspaper in McCall, Idaho to sequence without text for this book. The images are reprinted using stochastic screening, a frequency modulation technique similar to conventional halftone printing that uses mathematical values to generate random density patterns. The printing method heightens awareness of the original source of the images, yet the visual language of notable people and events takes on a cryptic semiotic system when plucked from their news-worthy contexts. Blond twin toddlers in neck braces, a black bear's domestic appearance, and flooded riverbanks become signifiers of attention-worthy moments and together assemble to capture a micro-cultural survey pregnant with meaning." - via Printed Matter Books.
