Alternative Process Printing – Inspirational Creativeness and Variety

Alternative Process Prints

What I love about alternative process printing is the fact that it allows to create many different images just from one subject; and even it’s the same subject, you create unique, one of a kind images which tell their own stories. The selection shown below, has been created using some of the popular processes, such as cyanotype, van dyke, palladiotype and kallitype. Some of the prints are toned, some are kept in their original process colors.
The size of the paper vary between 15×15 cm and 40×50 cm. To keep the original colors and structure, I have photographed them while displaying on a wooden stand.

Many of the prints are also available for sale. Send me a message via the contact page if you are interested in buying some original artwork.

If you’d like to learn how to make such images, check my event calendar page for workshops and tuitions in Alternative Process Printing.

And now enjoy the slideshow :)

New Book: Raw Beauties – A Polaroid Project

RAW Beauties Cover

Two of my polaroids from a session with model St. Merrique have been selected for a new book project.
The selection was made by Han Boersma from Arnheim, The Netherlands (http://www.rawbeauty.nl) and contains the work from 66 artists from around the world.

“Some individuals of delicate sensibilities find erotic art offensive, shocking and outrageous. But as Terence famously said, “Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto.” (“I am a human: nothing that is human is alien to me.). For some reason certain varieties of human eroticism disturb some people more then even violence and cruelty do. I often wonder why people care about the sexual behavior of other people. Are their lves so devoid of purpose that they have the time to rage about something that has nothing to do with them? As I wrote in another book on the erotic arts:
The mark of great art is that is forever fresh and forever rewarding. Unlike pornography, which can lose its erotic charge upon subsequent viewings and necessitate the need for fresh, new examples, true erotic art, regardless of how often it is viewed, remains easthetically compelling and sexually stimulating. The captured erotic instant must be so caught that the fire of the passion burns through time and circomstance – just as it does in the Barberini’s Faun, or Rodin’s similar fauness, Iris, mssageredes Dieux, in Rembrandt’s etchings, in Courbet’s L’Oririiging du Monde’, the watercolors and drawings of Egon Schiele, in Modigliani, Pacin, Balthus, Belmer and other masters of the erotic. This is the kind of work that Han Boersma celebrates and exhibits in his RAW ART gallery: authentic ART charged with the sexual shock and thrill.” — (John Woods)
