The Carbon print “Down the Rabbit Hole” is the first image of my new project with the working title Revelations. The image and the project is dealing with forest and its invisible energies. Forest and spirituality is the key part of my artistic inspiration especially at my last project A New Earth. I guess it is going along a project that I’ve done more than 20 years ago, Fairy Tales from Gorjanci. For this project I’m using ultra-large 16×20″ view camera, I’m making wet plate collodion negatives and print them as carbon prints. I’m using a lot of hand retouching techniques, some of them I’ve developed myself. The result is imaginary world of spirits, energies and cracks in the fabric of reality in the middle of the solitude of the forest.
This is a carbon print from a wet plate collodion negative.
