After a few months of moving between the darkroom and the ‘wet studio’ - “Meeting Frida”, a new body of work is ready!
I wrote about the beginning of this work in a previous blog post http://www.amykankaphotography.com/blog/2018/11/7/frida-and-me
And here is a peek at the process of creating the images in this series. After the initial exposure and developer step in the darkroom, the wet image moves to a light filled studio where I paint chemicals on the light sensitive black and white paper, watching colors emerge. Despite the fact that I know the science behind it, still feeling I am witnessing magic. Painting with light …. there is nothing like it!!
