unique cibachrome print mounted on aluminium and framed

152 × 127 cm | 59 7/8 × 50 in

Large-scale photograph made directly onto Cibachrome paper using a camera obscura.

Small pieces of hand-bent neon, no more than 10 inches in length, were placed in a darkroom, composed as abstract still lives and enlarged and photographed through a 1920s process lens at f8 with a depth of field of around 6mm, directly onto photographic paper, creating a unique image without the use of a negative.
