Red Field by Curtis Mann / Chemically altered chromogenic development print
Mann paints on portions of enlarged color photographs with a clear varnish and then bleaches away unprotected portions of the image.
"Paying attention to the photograph as an object exposes it as something impermanent, fallible and extremely malleable," explains Mann. "Coming from a mechanical engineering background, I have always been curious about the chemicals and inks used to produce photographs. The flat, conventional, image holds potential.".
