#19 An Odyssey with John Boyce (Mr De Vere)
Just Simon and Andrew “live in the studio” this week with a recorded interview that Andrew did with John Boyce owner of Odyssey De Vere (Large format enlargers if you are unfamiliar).
Despite the lack of “live” guest we still manage to ramble on for a fair while so hang in there till you get to the inaugural LFPP Outside Broadcast (OK it will get better).
Thanks to Neil Piper for the loan of his digital recorder, it’s probably something we ought to get for future use as the chat was a lot of fun.
Things we chatted about on the show
Andrew talked about his mini exhibition of Fenland prints and how he hopes to use liquid emulsion on watercolour paper for this – here are some useful links and a note of the book Andrew spoke about
We chatted about Bromoil process and Simon reference a series of YouTube videos
Simon and his pals at the Six Towns Darkroom Club in Stoke on Trent were recently gifted some paper and it included some lovely Oriental Seagull FB paper which is no longer available. This led on to a discussion about Lith Printing and Andrew ran through the basic process and mentioned a few helpful sites
The Master who is Tim Rudman
Get on Tim’s mailing list for news about current “lithable” papers
The go-to site for lith materials and info (and Bromoil by the way) is Wolfgang Moersch
To see beautiful examples of Wolfgang’s work check out his Flikr page
We had some emails
Joachim Gross sent links to the company in Germany where he bought his lovely wooden tripod
Simon mentioned he was given a Paterson Orbital print processor and Andrew mentioned the daylight tray being developed by Stearman Press
Eventually…….. we lead in to just under an hour of discussion with John Boyce of Odyssey Devere – Now Simon refused to edit this to cover up for Andrew’s ineptness but hang in there as John is a lovely guy and we had a wonderful chat
