Silver Gelatin is graphite on black and only visible on approach. Similar to the process of focusing and recalling a memory and the visual quality of a film negative. The source material combines photographs from criminal archives and film noir stills of the early 20th century. This era, has since inherited a nostalgic charm that morphs the past into legends, romanticised by the outdated fashions. Our interpretation of reality is flawed. Exploring these flaws is curiously more interesting then seeking perfect photo realism.
