PAINTING WITH DEVELOPER

Selectively applying developer to photographic paper – by dripping, splattering, sponging and painting it – can enhance the meaning of the image or create new meaning. These graphic, one-of-of a kind images reverse the positive and negative space, add a dynamic sense of movement, and create complex, high-contrast borders. As with all photography, what the photographer decides to reveal or obscure in their photograph is very telling. Equally important: these photographs are fun to make.
