All but one of the Ahu Ahu Ohu photographs ('Gateway...', photo below) were taken on the same day. While working, Andrew spent two nights camped in the Community Building (photo above).
The exhibition prints are contact-printed from 8"x10" black and white film negatives, a process that creates prints of the same size as the negatives and with the maximum possible detail and tonal subtlety (as opposed to scanning or optically enlarging the negatives). The prints are gold- and selenium toned to enhance the tonal range and add extra archival stability.
