Paper Negative Positives










Paper Negative by Sam White

The prints below were made by passing light through paper negatives. During the development of the print I have added higher concentrations of developer. It was then allowed to diffuse slowly throughout the surface of the image, before removing the print prematurely (before all the image is evenly developed).

The process is hit and miss, and took a little practice to get a good feel for what effects work well.

I’m always excited by the process of photography. Working in this way lets me reveal and play with the chemistry directly, just as the paper negative process plays more directly with light.

Each print below is available in my etsy shop. Be quick – there is only one of each!
