This book is my journal from a road trip I embarked on in 2009. The book has been illustrated with complex and beautiful lith prints taken on my journey. It is a rare opportunity to see through this photographers lens. It is also a great opportunity to enjoy the moody and enigmatic qualities of lith photography, a complicated form of hand printed work involving black and white negative.
I have been taking pictures since I was a small child. Eventually I went on to study fine art photography. I am attracted to the more hands on approach of traditional black and white printing, and I am especially drawn to the intricate process of lith photography. Lith printing is an intense photo process that also uses black and white negatives. What gives the image its color is the combination of the different black and white silver gelatin papers and the lith chemistry. Lith printing is more complex than traditional black and white printing, but the end result speaks to my soul, making the more complicated process well worth the effort.
