Hand-painted inkjet prints.

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.
