Primitive Photography

This project looks into the history of photography, investigating how new technology has transformed the art, as well as exploring its relationship to drawing.

The images used were taken by my Dad a little over 36 years ago. I scanned in the negatives, decreased the quality so you could see the pixels and printed the images on acetate to create photograms in the darkroom.

The final step was to draw the features back in, using a cartoon style.
