A Series of Darkroom Experiments

The materiality of photography is explored in this collaborative project by Helen Peart and Mary Stark, exhibited at the last OneFiveEight Expo at Kraak gallery.

Created through combining an experimental approach with traditional darkroom processes, the image becomes almost secondary to the physical manipulation of photographic paper and negatives.
