Painting with developer

Here you can see some works, part of an experiment done by Sándor in Transylvania when he was developing his own black and white photos.

This is basically painting, while it fits on the photography also as the light is cached on the sensitive material, on the photo paper.
The developer is translucent so one needs apart creativity and imagination some knowledge also, on how to handle the chemical used to develop the photos. Basically, the developer is carried over on the photo paper with a brush. You may have the feeling that you are painting with water as just after a few seconds the lines are starting to become yellow, brown, or black. You must be familiar with the paper, the developer, you must handle the water fast to quickly wash the paper when you are assuming that the process must be stopped and fixed so you can apply the fixative. “I would call this: painting with light, this is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever tested,” this is how Sándor has expressed himself when asked about it.

Thank you for your time to review my experiment. If you may have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
