Feature #4

Tiffany Teske's art is as intriguing as her method for creating it. Here's what she has to say about it:

To begin this unique photographic art I capture an image on slide film. The slide is then projected onto Polaroid pack film which is peeled prematurely. The “waste” side of the film pack, which contains processing chemicals, is then placed face down onto wet watercolour paper and brayed (rolled over with a print making brayer). The result is a one-of-a-kind hand-pulled photographic transfer of the original slide image. The original image can be transferred an unlimited number of times but the resulting transfer will always vary from the last.

I picked this picture because I know several women who are pregnant right now, so it's been on my mind lately and also because I absolutely loved being pregnant. It was one of the best periods in my life and I even loved my round baby belly. The soft, warm, muted tones of this photo are a beautiful depiction of this special time in a women's life. Check out Tiffany's other photos (like one entitled ferntebrae that illustrates the relation between nature and the human body) at her Etsy shop or by clicking on the picture above.
