Chris Trigaux: Bookmaking at Community Darkrooms
Chris Trigaux is a third year art photography major at Syracuse University taking TRM 351, Advanced Transmedia Studio 3. When his class was assigned a project with a “ghost” theme, he took to the streets with his medium format camera and began making pictures with reflections in them. Chris has been interested in making books and creating an object so viewers can have a more intimate experience with his pictures. We caught up with Chris in the Community Darkrooms lounge, and this is what he had to say about his work: “I like to think of my work in a series and putting images in a book with the specific intention of placement interests me. I think of the book as a container of my images,” he explained. “I also enjoy the hands-on approach to creating a book as I spend a lot of time in front of a monitor.” This book is one-of-a-kind and Chris has plans to make more books as he pursues his interest in photography.
