phtograph, gelatin silver print on fiber paper
Student Artwork Purchase Award
The image was printed on fiber paper in the darkroom and then it was treated with specific chemicals. Mordancage is the name of the chemical process. It's more or less a bleach etching process where everything ttat is black in the image lifts from the paper, allowing the photographer to manipulate it by hand.
