another image from my latest Zeiss Ikon series

I exposed a piece of photographic paper in this camera

then I developed this paper negative in solution of instant coffee and washing soda. Scanned, inverted and adjusted in photoshop

Soxy moves between different media, recycling, assembling, capturing and bringing previously unseen things to the surface.
If she’s not creating something visual she will be singing and making music….

    its awesome stuff, honestly. did you record how long you developed the negs for in the solution and the quantities of soda and coffee? I’m really loved to hear a full account of it by bubblemail if possible? Also what sort of exposure times did you use on the camera etc? oooo its so exciting….

  • I just watch the developing and pull it out when I think it is done…there is a lot of leeway because photoshop is so clever…even so I haven’t had to do much adjusting at all. I have a way of working out my paper exposures but it involves lots of experience and guess work (and magic, I’m big on that!)
    coffee chemistry is in one of my journals way back but I shall find the link and let you know. I’m so pleased you find it exciting too! thank you!

    Soxy this is so wonderfully dreamy…this series is a refreshing reminder that in a world filled with megapixels and Photoshop the most important thing is still the artist and that wonderful initial spark of creativity.

  • thank you Jim, that’s a lovely thing to say.
    I delight myself with this work and I am eager to do more
