005 – still life attempts

A series of underexposed still life arrangements on color negative film, Fuji Pro 400H. These first images the series were developed with ars imago’s c-41 chemicals and then scanned for a first view because the darkroom is closed at the moment.

Scanning has become such a compromise. It’s an art in itself that I am not necessarily interested in mastering at all. If I could not print my color negatives in a darkroom just a few minutes away from my studio, it may be different. Especially when it comes to unorthodox lighting or controlled underexposure, it takes a while and finesse to scan and edit the images accurately. And even then, the possibilities of color seem to remain untouched. I look forward to printing these works in the darkroom.
