Create Something Today



Post-Script: I like this set's resemblance to photo booth prints. Small, discrete, imperfect, timeless. Could have been made fifty years ago instead of last week. The scan doesn't do them justice; their texture and gloss is amazing.

Word has it that Harman is seeking to reverse-engineer the liquid emulsion used to make this paper. If they succeed, we may see a follow-on product that will keep alive the dream of direct positive prints from camera to hand. In the meantime, those wishing to dabble in these alternative photographic methods will have to be satisfied with shooting more conventional paper negatives, which will then require the additional step of contact printing before a finished print can be seen in hand.

great series of portraits, I especially like that last one on the right - lots of character and meaning in that shot
