Each exposure was made on expired 35mm film. The film was hand developed using color and black and white chemistry in a bathtub with improper temperature regulation and on some improvised equipment. The negatives were enlarged with darkroom processing; vignetting, saturation, and dodging were applied by hand while enlarging the negative. A low resolution copy machine scanner was used at the factory setting to digitize the print. No digital attempt at cleaning or touching up scratches or dirt on the images was made or will be made.
*Some images have been tampered with using software however, but done so in under 30 seconds with no revision, if the processed negative itself was deemed too perfect; as well as the resizing for the giclée print process*
The prints are meant to be incredibly noisy, grainy, show thick grit with pixelated space when pulled and enlarged, while drown in heavy blur. The works are meant to appear unrefined and dirty as they reflect the collective beauty and flaws in the artifacts that human beings create and have left behind.
The overarching idea of this portfolio was, to in a way, show the pointillistic attributes that the artist admires in his favorite Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic painters.
Each image is printed on archival, museum grade fine-art paper and will arrive sealed in protective plastic. The prints will be rolled in a 4 inch cardboard tube. Shipping is included in final price. Every print will arrive with a certificate of authenticity and corresponding holographic sticker and will be signed by the photographer.
