2019-2020 Inkjet print and acrylic gouache
Hand-coloring or hand-painting monochrome photographs started soon after the appearance of daguerreotypes in 1839. Hand-painting was developed to enhance the realism and artistic value of black and white photos. The technique achieved popular success in Japan, Europe, and the United States from the mid 19th Century to the mid 20th Century until the introduction of color film by Kodak. In this series hand-coloring is applied to the inkjet print offering the viewer an alternate, artistically enhanced presentation of the subject in each image.
