Some weird and wonderful physical-art photos from KY6R. Rich Holoch has been by profession a database administrator (DBA), now an amazing physical-and-photographic artist, and for a long time an amateur radio operator (thus the “KY6R”). At one time I suffered the amateur radio thing myself, and although still licensed, I am far less an afficionado than Rich is. His interest is DX meaning distance and low power [QRP] amateur radio operation. A couple of watts of power and contacting someone on the other side of the globe. (Or maybe bouncing a radio signal off the moon and listening for an echo.)
I particularly like Rich’s approach of using found objects, which trigger nostalgia, and positioning and lighting them creatively. Some might describe his work as spooky or weird as well as completely intriguing.
I’m going to feature two sets of KY6R photos, one set today and one set tomorrow – here is the first:
