Michael Donnor: Silent Moan

Michael Donnor: Silent Moan. "...The process begins with the negative; the decision of how to destroy it and decay it is about looking further than when the shutter was released. Many techniques are used to further convey the concept in each image, freezing, melting, scratching, and cutting are a few. Once the negative is finished, the control of depth of field is done through the enlarger, allowing the choice in each print of where the focus will be. The prints are silver gelatin; archivally toned in tea and selenium, they are signed, dated, titled and editioned. The edges are then burned and encaustic is applied in layers, finishing each piece from conception to print."
