Process

My unique silver gelatin photographs have a distinct quality that comes from using an old, thin B&W photographic paper that has been out of production for more than 30 years now (Socialist paper/ORWO, FORTE).  Because the paper is old, results vary and the final product is unpredictable. My relationship to the paper allows me to arrange the mosaic of experiences and emotions without the limits of space and time. No edition possible
