Kittel Johannes Jurgenson (Joe) Tronerud

Kittel Tronerud

My journey into film photography has been heavily influenced by my maternal grandfather Kittles Tronerud (1870-1938).

Although he died in hospital after an operation when my mother was a little girl I have always wondered about the man and his large format photography.

While I haven’t quite made it to a full darkroom process (currently scanning negatives as a hybrid workflow), and I haven’t yet shot large format, there has been quite a journey to reach this point.

Hopefully the money situation will improve and I can get my act together on this project. But these are hard times in Tasmania. I may not be as dirt poor as Kittles with as many mouths to feed but the cost of making journeys onto King Island is currently out of my reach.

On that note, if there is a large format photographer in the Hobart area who would be interested in gently introducing me to large format photography I would be extremely grateful. Ideally it would be good to reach a skill level where I could shoot and process large format on King Island.
