Darkroom 35mm Film Giclée Prints, framed in the absence of human presence, showing the artifacts left behind by old peoples, and slices taken from life from western empires in decline.

An exposure of the sign of the establishment where I sat down and had three Cinzano and club sodas.


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.  *(Only the resizing for the giclée process)*

The prints are meant to be noisy, grainy, and show grit when pulled and enlarged. 

The overarching idea of this portfolio was, to in a way, show the pointillistic attributes that the artists admires in his favorite Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic painters. 

The works are meant to appear unrefined and dirty.  Reflecting the collective beauty and flaws in the artifacts that human beings create and have left behind. 

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 price and only 110 images of each size will be made of each image.  A total of 550 per image.  Every print will arrive with a certificate of authenticity and corresponding holographic sticker and will be signed by the photographer.
