Estate Mediterranea

A collection of images from the Italian coast taken over the last ten years or so. I want to see whether I have enough disparate images to stimulate a project.

2016: I printed a number of 35mm frames on very old 10×8 Ilford Ilfospeed RC 3 paper. After so many years of dubious storage the prints are very flat and the paper itself greyed/fogged. For fun I then tea stained the paper. The process of scanning original prints – defects and all – as opposed to direct scanning of the negative is becoming increasingly attractive to me.
