Hand Printed Silver Gelatin Works

Nick's recent and continuing works include X-ray images exposed to produce silver gelatin prints.  Hand applied onto Fabriano Paper.

The X-rays look beyond the surface, yet creating prints where we apply chemicals to differing surfaces makes for an intriguing dichotomy.  Alongside this dialogue the viewer also receives a poignant narrative regarding the current fuel crisis with the aid of some modern urban humour.
