When I’m creating my work I’m trying to find answers to my own questions, by trying to make work about the questions themselves. My current work revolves around questions I ask myself. Why do I like photography? What part of this whole process do I like, and why. I came to the conclusion that I love working in the darkroom developing film. I thought that I could do this by taking the film and developing it without having to take a photographs and trying to make an image from nothing. Thinking about this another question came up which was, “We take multiple photographs of the same subject. At a glance they look the same, but each image has something that is different. So I wonder if it applied to what I was doing.
The process of making the photographs is really important to the content of the picture itself. Making the photos consists of expired film. The way that each image is constructed is similar and unique. By taking two negatives and sandwiching them together and then applying the developer, stop bath, fixer, hypo clear, water, and heat, I reveal multiple layers of both of the negatives simultaneously. Doing this I would hope to get the same result on both negatives because they have the same time to develop.
