As a certified camera nerd born and raised in Space City, David Salinas can appreciate the latest in wiz-bang digital innovation, but he’s also an artist who came of age in the waning decades of the last century who loves his medium at its most painterly — untamed and unpredictable — when he can actually get his hands dirty. Naturally Salinas has become a Saint Anthony of vintage film, de-acquisitioned enlargers, Mad Max paper, and “day-old” developing chemicals whose photography is noted as much for its multifaceted process (weaving massive strips of paper in the dark or splashing bleach from a ladder) and DIY darkroom aesthetic as its striking imagery and mastery of composition.
