Mirror remover on unique silver gelatin fiber print

Dispersions toy with the conceit that a photograph is a mirror. Each composition is rendered visible by the pushing and pulling of the paper’s embedded silver through the application of mirror remover intended for the restoration of traditional mirrors. It both extracts the silver drop by drop and pushes it around its surface; when left unfixed, the chemical undergoes an exposure of its own shifting tone and darkening slowly over time.
