Collecting images is something done by everyone in some fashion or another. Whether it is images they take themselves or images given to them. Now that we have immediate access to a camera on our phones, setting up for a picture is as automatic as lifting an arm. We only have to hit a button. The process of working with an image from an older form of image-making, say glass negatives makes you slow down editing and presentation of that image. Not wanting to loose the hand-made quality of glass negatives but bring them to a contemporary purpose is the premise of my current work.
