Lumen prints

My collection of prints highlights uses of alternative photographic processes. I am drawn to reinventing the traditional photographic image by exploring an unlimited number of variables in the lumen printing process. Colorful impressions of objects come to live from an interaction with the sun and natural objects by using a variety of expired black and white photographic papers. My arrangements are reflective of my passion for botany and the spectacular details plant structures exhibit. Different photographic papers result in different color qualities of the lumen printing process. Experience some of the magic in this alternative photographic process.

Here are some examples using different papers and different exposure times.
