Description forsythia branch and leaves were left on photo paper in the sun, and the paper recorded the impression of the plant. i make these prints often, they are called 'lumen prints' and are some of the oldest types of photography. like the early photographs, these lumen prints i make do not last, they can not be 'fixed' so the image fades away both in darkness and in light. the image is also undermined by the scanner.
John Nanian, Warwick, RI Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement most all of the images of mine found here are from original film or paper negatives. if the images are Black + White, I can most likely print you a silver print, prices are different than imagkind for custom prints.
