Typographic Photography by Arne Lind

Johnston Underground, London May 1985

Hel­lo, I am Arne. I live and work in Stock­holm, Swe­den. I work as a graph­ic design­er and I became inter­est­ed in pho­tog­ra­phy in the late 1960s. The inter­est raise dur­ing the 1980s as art direc­tor for a Pho­to mag­a­zine (FOTO).

A wide range of cam­eras have been used over the years. Most­ly Leicas. M2, M3, M5, M6 and a Leicaflex SL2. In ear­ly years Prac­ti­ca, Yashica, Canon, Has­sel­blad 1000F. Lat­er, besides the Leicas, Canon Dial, Nikon, most­ly FM and FE, occa­sion­al­ly a Leica CL, a Minox 35, Pen­tax 6x7, Has­sel­blad 500C and so on. The film has main­ly been Kodak Tri-X. Neg­a­tives are scanned in 16-bit (pos­i­tive scan then invert­ed), Pho­to­shop is used for the final work which is lim­it­ed to dust and scratch­es besides crop­ping and image con­trasts.

Hillman Curtis (1961 — 2012)

David Hill­man Cur­tis (Feb­ru­ary 24, 1961 — April 18, 2012) was an Amer­i­can new media design­er, author, and film­mak­er. Hill­man Cur­tis was a for­mer rock musi­cian who became a promi­nent first-gen­er­a­tion Web design­er and a vision­ary fig­ure in the Internet’s evo­lu­tion: from a pre­dom­i­nant­ly text-based medi­um to the mul­ti­me­dia plat­form it is today. He made the first ever Flash web­site and died on Wednes­day, at his home in Brook­lyn.
