With the limitation of working only with the available light source I wanted to document light and explore using multiple process incorporating available light by documenting past light. I approached this by taking a photograph in film of a photograph that was previously digitally captured and printed. The end result was a traditional darkroom print. My goal was to comment on the reflection of time … how our past influences our present and how our future is only limited by our perception.
