NEW BOOKS FOR A NEW CENTURY
Contains abstract Photographs
of small scale creations.
Swancy, chose Polaroid film
because it had a quality to create variations on using the patterns he designed. During the process he experimented with the light images he projected through the enlarger, using various development chemistries and temperatures and altering and deepening tones. Along, with Advance Image Transferring Techniques which allowed him to Explore a New Medium and control the Transfer Process.
