So apparently I can scan these things. Who would have known? I did end up putting a tiny scrape on my scanner glass, which makes me a little unhappy, but life goes on, right? The scans, of course, are NOTHING compared to the real deal, which are reflective shiny multi-layered goodness. Some people have used the term "holographic" in an effort to try and pin the effect down, but I am not so sure how to describe it myself. It just makes me happy
These are prints of one Gordie Parham, a very pleasant model to work with. They were created using Black Magic Liquid Emulsion, painted onto copper plates and exposed in a darkroom using digitally created negatives. The various forms of degradation and distortion, I think, really contribute to the work.
The original black and white images that I used to make these, as well as the rest of the pictures from that set, can be viewed here.
