blood on my hands

aglaia b

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

This image was shot on transparency film and the transparency was manipulated further using a Daylab printer and Polaroid pull apart film where the film is pulled apart before a positive can be processed. The dyes remaining on the Polaroid film were then transferred by rolling onto blotting paper. This is a very unique technique as you will never be able to reproduce the same image twice. There will always be a different amount of dye remaining on the film each time you do it making each image different from the last.
A red pencil was also used here to darken the lips a little and the bottom of the dress. A black pencil was also used on the bottom.
