  • Liquid Emulsion; A Series of images printed on Silver Birch

    I created this series of work using liquid emulsion applied to the bark of Silver Birch. The emulsion is a silver-based sensitizer which I painted onto the bark in a darkroom and exposed using an enlarger and then developed in conventional chemistry. This emulsion can be used to coat a wide variety of surfaces making the possibilities endless! I love how the texture of the bark has become part of the original image, the dancers seem ghostly, impregnated onto the decaying form of the birch.

    For further details on the process of using liquid emulsion www.alternativephotography.com is a really useful source of information.
