Six Portraits (Circular cards in an envelope) (2015/2016)

These were inspired by seeing close-up photographs of the contorted, frozen faces of the sailors from a doomed 19th century Arctic expedition.  "Six Portraits" started as film photographs that were printed in a darkroom.  I had scraped the negatives against the floor before developing them so as to introduce random scratches and marks.  The negatives were then cut into circles and sandwiched between packing tape so they could be held by a negative tray.  The prints were later scanned and layered in Photoshop.
