This image was shot in my home built 4″ x 5″ camera, and the negative “printed” onto a second sheet of film, making a positive The positive sheet was then printed onto paper in the normal manner using an enlarger, producing a negative final image. Blue toner was later applied.
One of my favorite photographers is Jerry Uelsmann, who has been making composite photos for many decades, starting in a time when a “photo shop” was a dark room, not a piece of software. I’ve been doing some experiments with this technique of burning different parts of various images onto a single piece of paper to fabricate a completely new image. It’s difficult work, takes a lot of patience, and uses a lot of paper before you get something worth keeping, but it’s worth it.
