Salt prints – Not setbacks only learning curve

The same image of the last post, plus two images that I really will love to have beautifully printed.

But, art is not a safe place, when it becomes so efficient that you can count with the notion of control it becomes BORING. At least for me off course, I lack the patience or is simply that I’m unable of find stability in anything. Anyway… here we go again.
The eternal image from the web

The two images I love so much.

The first one is from Miguel Boller a friend with whom I’ve been working recently in projects of design about the Nasa People, their history and traditions<.

I think the problem was the salt, still dealing with that issue.

Here is the original image.

The second one is another image I really love. Is from Javier Liz, you can see the original here. It reminds me so much of my bro Yuluts and even of my own childhood when in vacations we traveled to my grandma’s house.

Before and after fixer scans.

There was something with the chemistry those days, the black stain again, in these photographs I really don’t like it.
