During the past three years, alternative processes have been my primary focus, especially Salt Printing, the first printed out photographic process created by Talbot in the 1830's. The juxtaposition of historic and contemporary themes are the basis in which my work is carefully constructed. Using both traditional processes with modern technology allowed me to create work using both techniques physically and conceptually, by using a medium format digital back, transform that file into a digital negative onto Pictorico and contact print the negative onto pure cotton paper, resulting in a salted paper print from a digital negative. This enables me to explore subjects with both modern aspects and traditional hints within the compositions.
