Homage to summer's end and the advent of fall while pursuing the secrets of lumen printing.
In the choice of papers, processing, and sequencing, my intent has been to depict the transition from the clear, bright light of summer to the golden colors of autumn. From a riot of flower and foliage to the changing of the leaves in the last flash of glory.
In this series, the lumen prints are not fixed, and in some cases they have been deliberately allowed to continue to change lying face up in indirect light after being taken from the frame. I scanned the changing images at different intervals, and then used these scanned artifacts as a negative might be used - dodging, burning, layering, and compositing the scanned images in the digital darkroom to arrive at the final work.
