Lumen Prints

I have been exploring the process of making lumen prints to build on recent ideas surrounding the connection I have to my work through the use of physical contact during the process. To produce these lumen prints I have used black and white photographic paper and exposed it in sunlight. During the process I have used both my breath and my hands to place items such as sand, seawater, leaves and seeds onto the paper. The resulting pictures are varying in shapes and colours depending on the time exposed for and items used.
