About this series: Colour in Black and White
A collection of black & white photos that have been converted from colour originals. This confluence of photographic styles is largely a product of the digital photography revolution which gives photographers a broad range of ways to express their artistic vision.
'These pigment-based giclée prints on specially prepared translucent vellum with metal leaf applied to the back. The vellum is hand coated to accept the inks. After the print is made and has set up, the metal leaf is applied to the back of the print. The vellum is treated to maximise transparency and the luminescence of the leaf shines through the front of the print.'
