Handcrafted 21 images Created 18 Mar 2020
These handcrafted photographs are made using an early Victorian recipe. Ingredients include silver, beeswax, lavender oil, and salt, which are applied by hand onto a heavy Hahnemuhle platine paper. The photographs are contact printed with sunlight and toned with gold. Beeswax & lavender oil are buffed into the paper. The results are an archival image with delicate tones and a soft luster not possible with modern sprayed-on ink. The handcrafted nature of this simple, yet demanding, process means that each work is individually created one at a time and no two are exactly the same.
