The Funk Zone is an irritating name for a part of Santa Barbara that's been reinvented in the last few years. Old light-industrial zone now with a bunch of wine-tasting clubs, cafes, etc etc. What I like about is that a small number of SB artists have found homes/studios for themselves in the nooks and crannies of the scene. I mentioned Philip Koplin and Virginia McCracken in an earlier post. Today I met the photographer Lindsey Ross at her studio La chamber photographique. Ross works with big format cameras, tintypes, and the 19th c. wet-plate collodion process. The woman has style and a great truck.
