Photographic Etchings

My photographic etchings are original pieces of art which are hand-printed using etched light-sensitive plates, ink, cotton-based paper, and an etching press. To start, I walk and explore a city and take many photos and create a photomontage scene on the computer. The I transfer the final photomontage to etching plates using a photopolymer technique, then I hand-print them. The whole process can easily take a month or more to complete.
