Painted film collage
I have been photographing the industrial sections of West Oakland . Many of the industrial buildings are slated for redevelopment, often morphing into live-work condos. Left unattended, the buildings become canvases for paint and graffiti, applied in alternating layers by landlords and taggers. The process I developed years ago is a match for this layering. The image is printed on clear film and painted on the reverse side . A second layer of drawing paper holds pastel and collage. The 2 layered process is scanned and printed .
