Vitriol - handmade book

This is the third book in my Alchemical photography book cycle, which I started in 2004.



The cover is made from copper plates which have been antiqued. There are 21 pages, each with handcolored photographs from wet plate collodion negative. Text ripped from the pages, burnt and written over with the resulting ash.



And here's a video of me attempting to explain it a bit.

Earth Magic (#2)






Darkroom print from glass plate negative. A darkroom accident led to the shattering of this negative, leaving me with only 4 available prints. I am signing and numbering these as an edition and offering 3 of them for sale (reserving one for exhibition). # 1/4 is already spoken for. Please contact me if you are interested in one of the other two prints available.
