Bromoïl

Tirages Bromoïl | Encre taille douce Charbonnel sur papier baryté.

Bromoïl is an ancient technique that combines photography with the physical principles of engraving and lithography. It consists of transforming a silver gelatin print into an inked image. The silver gelatin print, previously bleached, will gradually reappear under the brushstrokes. It then becomes possible to interpret the image by creating and orienting the light sources as desired by accentuating or reducing certain areas until they disappear completely.

In this vaporous and poetic atmosphere, the grain brought by the brushes and ink will move us away from the primary photographic style to approach the drawing and painting.
