The original image is from a 2 1/4 film negative take with a Hasselblad.
The negative was scanned and then printed with an Epson 3880 on cotton fiber paper.
The image was printed using Ink Jet Mall’s Piezography system.
There are six shades of Black and Grey inks used in making the image.
This creates a high resolution image with a wonderful range of tones.
The photograph is dry mounted to 11×14 acid free mat board.
Teri Darnell’s Berlin ‘Cabaret of the Nameless’ series is influenced by the works of Caravaggio, Rembrandt, and Georges de La Tour.
La Tour, a French painter of the 17th century, composed startling geometric simplifications of the human form, and created theatrical interior scenes lit only by the glare of candles. Like these painters, her images focus on dramatic situations and subjects, and a high contrast of light and dark (chiaroscuro).
One hundred years ago, cabarets began to flourish in Berlin, and performances included political satires. In the 1920’s, Nazi power repressed this intellectual criticism. Performers were imprisoned and murdered in concentration camps. While in the camps, the artists continued having cabarets to lift everyone’s spirits until they were executed.
I began photography at a rather advanced age and I have been engage with it practically full time ever since I started in 2007. Currently, I only do candid street photography but for the first 5 years, I ws involved with portraits including self-portraits. I have been in about 50 group shows and I have had 3 solo exhibitions. Along the way, I have won a few awards. I am thankful the photography has enhanced my life.

I am a self taught photographer. I have taken photos for over 40 years, from film to digital, from wet darkroom to the digital darkroom of the computer. Photography is one way that I am able to experience the moment, suspend time and reconnect with myself. I am quite eclectic in the subjects I choose to shoot, anything is fair game. My wish is that my imagery creates an intimate conversation that takes the viewer to a place of quiet contemplation because it is my visual representation of conversation and feelings. My photography creates a legacy of all the sacred and beautiful things that I am privileged to experience in my time here. The fragility of life is a catalyst for me to do what I can to preserve it one frame at a time and in doing so I hope that it says that I too existed. I was born in Norfolk, Virginia and raised in small North Carolina towns, I currently live in Fayette County, Georgia.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, then transplanted to Florida’s gulf coast, fine art photographer, Jamie Maciuszek has called Atlanta home for almost 34 years. He earned degrees at Michigan State University and University of South Florida, then enjoyed a successful business career before finally surrendering to his creative passion for photography. His artistic style is sophisticated and masculine, and his powerful images are easily recognizable.
In this time and space we live in, it is important to honor, to create, to preserve, to tell the stories. That is the hope for my photographic work
