Almond & May

Almond & May from the Tide Marks Print Collection

35mm transparency, cross processed, with acrylic on photographic paper.

The photographs were made at Fistral Beach in Cornwall. Shot on transparency/slide film, then cross processed in the darkroom and overpainted in the studio.

Cross processing is the procedure of deliberately processing photographic film in a chemical solution intended for a different type of film, in this case, colour slide film developed as if it were a colour negative film.

The results are unpredictable, but often produce vibrant colours.

Using the photograph as a canvas, the seascape, surfers and dog walkers in the photo are abstracted by the painting on the surface.

By painting directly onto the photograph as an addition and obscuring feature, the original photograph is recontextualised. 

Layers of intense colour create rich complexity and alter notions of time and narrative.
