Sepia Prints

1996

The sepia prints were developed first as a photo collage. Approximately 24 snapshots taken by a point and shoot camera. The collage was photocopied in black and white and retouched by black and white pencils. Part photo; part drawing, to create a cohesive exaggerated perspective. This drawing on the photocopy was photographed with a slide film. That slide was my so-called „master copy", which I projected with a slide projector on light sensitive architectural blue print paper. The exposure time varied from several hours to several days. Depending on the scale and chose of paper (blue print, sepia and mylar) to imprint the image. It works similar as a camera obscura; instead of the pinhole you have the slide projection. The prints were later developed in an architectural copy shop.
