Untitled (Glass & Solarization), June, 2013. Silver gelatin chemigram, 8x10"
by Dante Penman
This isn’t for any particular project, it’s just darkroom fun.
I wanted to see how reflections would appear in a chemigram, so I used refracted light through a glass mason jar filled with flowers to expose the paper. After the 1st application of developer was calming down, I solarized a 2nd layer of developer around the border of the piece. It’s a strange result and I’m not sure if I really like the piece, but I can see how refracted light is going to be just as useful as direct light sources. I need to buy prisms.
