Over the past year, I’ve been fortunate to befriend and collaborate with Bill Daniel.
Bill has done pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted to do. Seriously. He’s published zines. He’s made films. He’s been in dank basements watching my favorite punk bands play their earliest shows. He’s tracked down the most famous hobo boxcar artist; Lived in amazing cities all over the United States; Has been featured in major art exhibits at the MOCA….
And to top it all off, he’s also won a Guggenheim. I’m not exaggerating. He has literally done all of those things. Needless to say, I was floored when Bill told us he’d collaborate on the latest issue of Shutterclank!.
Look at that for a second!
The largest print I’ve ever worked with, to date, has been a 16×20.
You know what Bill Daniel does in the morning? He puts his pants on one leg at a time… then he goes and makes a 40×60 print of Minor Threat from a negative he made in 80s! Brian Baker looks like a child in that photo, because he was a child in that photo!
Ok, all joking aside, the quality of Bill’s prints are amazing. The years of experience are evident in his work. He has just posted some new prints on his website Tri-X Noise. Including the Minor Threat print I was yapping about above. These aren’t some kind of freshmen orientation poster sale prints that your bro, Trevor, has hanging above “the smelly couch“. Bill is selling hand made silver gelatin photographs, that he printed in his darkroom. They range in size and price. Starting at $25.00 for a 8×10. Don’t sleep.
