Grabski: "Richmondensis Begonia"
Lumens prints are made with unexposed black and white photographic paper and placing plants, objects or negatives on top of the paper in the darkroom. Instead of using an enlarger you expose it to light. After the exposure you do not develop. The print is then fixed using normal paper fix and finished by washing too archival specifications.
Each lumen print will differ due to the type and age of the paper, exposure time, moisture in the air and plants. Exposure time can vary from a few hours to a few days.
The outcome is an array of unimaginable colors. Each print is unique, one of a kind, that cannot be duplicated.
