Photographs > Color Photographs

On the top is the original color photo; on the bottom is the same color photo with a photogram of Depression glass, crystal, or patterned glass laid on top of the image before it was exposed a second time. I experimented with color by arranging each photograph with a dominant color scheme, such as purple and lime green, orange, yellow, or red. The photogram was invented by Man Ray and Lee Miller and originally made with black and white paper. I wanted to see what would happen with color prints treated in a similar manner. I would like to continue to work on this idea with an eye toward adjusting the photogram images to print more true to their real colors, which in these photographs were green and pink, as well as clear.
