Photography: Black & White, Gelatin, Manipulated, Photogram on Iron, Paper, Plastic.
Black and white Alchemigram on Baryth gelatin photographic paper. An Alchemigram is a mixture of the analogue techniques of photogram, lumigram and chemigram. This one is made by carefully applying photographical and other chemical substances ( such as e.g. toilet-cleaner) on the photographic surface with a sponge, brush or bare hands. By this method, colors appear on the b/w Baryth paper, which usually is considered to be a mistake when making analogue prints. I turned the whole photographical process upside-down and paint in complete darkness. This work is an unique copy.
The work represents the Statue of Liberty in NY but rather looks like a portrait of an American Indian. - I like the idea.
The analogue print comes mounted on MDF panel with raw metal frame and acrylic glass.
