This little dog is always the subject of my photos. Yes it’s true. When I have a new camera I go: “Hello, doooooggy” – snap. Or I want to finish the film. Or I started a new roll. Or he is being cute – any one of these situations always fit.
His name is Josh. He is an 1 1/2 year old kaninchen (means rabbit) dachshund, a real small dog and so lovely. His whole body wiggles if he is happy. He has seen all of my Lomographic arms. He silently and patiently endures my exercises and tests and inspires me.
We already had another dachshund before we got Josh. Her name was Jule. When our lady dachshund died at the age of 16 this January, she left a big hole in our hearts. Then Josh found his way to us. He was not a replacement in the strictest sense, but if you have a dog you will understand, we are nothing without a canine companion! Before Jule there was Pat, a dachshund-German shepherd crossbreed. She was my companion till my age of 12.
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. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
