    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    Pandora's Box: "In Rooms" by Brittany Markert (NSFW)

    A truth: life is simple, living isn't. Within the grand scale of things, everything seems minuscule; how easy it is for the human to detach from soul and empathy and bury them within. This kept human condition and behavior is given limelight in photographer Brittany Markert's riveting series.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface.
