Ron’s dedicated page

Ron insisted that he and Donna move to his camper (at his sister’s house) while we stayed the two nights at his apartment.  He thinks of the two of us as a couple little boys getting together once a year to play in his psychedelic sandbox: with slide projections of his paintings onto his paintings, himself, and his models.  The cover of post-modern ‘appropriation’ allows me to shamelessly steal his ideas and techniques, and I hung a black cloth over the window to extend the sessions into the daytime.  Donna took Cheryl out shopping for the day while the boys got down to business.  Previously I had done digital copy pictures of the paintings, and it was (is) still possible to have the files made into 35mm film slides.  Ron shoots in a fast/intuitive way, while I work slowly and pedantically– using a tripod, fill-flash, and long exposures.  Needless to say, Ron gets superior results– he turns his paintings into expressionistic stained-glass.  Two of Ron’s paintings on paintings [©Ronald Mann] projection photos:
