Experimental Portait Negative/Postive Transfer
Breakdown of ideas
This series of work happened by complete accident back at Rmcad. All my negatives from my pinhole were over exposed and ruined. I was pretty annoyed at this point. I placed my one of my paintings on top of the light box while I gathered all my negatives and packed up for the evening. I glanced over at the light box before turning it off. I noticed my paintings transparency. The back side of the painting showed all these interesting layers on the light book that might not be visible normally. This inspired my series and to this day I still process experimental photo from paintings/drawings.
I treat my Paintings and Drawings like giant negatives. Exposing them just like you would a negative under the enlarger. This series explores all the different results from my transfers.
