Photograms

These are darkroom created images. Working from a scanned negative, or a digital print, I first print the image on a transparency or other semi-transparent material. In the darkroom, using the full size print as a large negative, I then layer on textures, other images and words. I’m drawn to the texture and the ability to use negative and positive images; the multiple layer final result in many instances better captures the essence of what I originally photographed.
