Chemical Photographs

Unfortunatly and sadly, this unique handmade book was taken on Fri 1st Sep 2023 during exhibition.

Single edition light sensitive handmade book
Silver gelatin prints, light sensitive photographic paper, regular developer and coffee developer as the inks
10.6 x 13.2 x 2.1 cm, 9 pages

All 9 pages, photographed from another angle

This book as an interactive part and the statement of the project Redefinition of the Photographic Chemicals, includes a few chemicals’ portraits and some of my thoughts reflected on the project. For me, book is a very authentic and intimate form of the artworks; I would like to invite the audiences to hold the book on their hands and touch the portraits as well as explore my thoughts.
