Alternative Process


Brittany Nelson

Alternative Process involves removing the silver from darkroom paper, using photographic chemicals to create form without a subject or a camera, finding the integrity in an unrecognizable material, and transforming the tradition of historical photographic processes. For this body of work, Nelson explores the 19th century process of Tintype photography to construct artifacts to speak about the future. Created entirely with 3D digital effects and translated into an 1850's photographic process, Nelson uses the history of the process against itself to critique her medium.
