You're looking at a work by Lynn Hyman Butler "Wonder Wheel at Night." Its one of the few color works on view in Forever Coney. Though the technique used to make it is very different from traditional color photography. Would you like to hear more about Butler's process for making this (I warn you it is very photo-techy!)
Thank you. That is what I wanted to know! I have no idea about "silver dye bleach technique".
The simplest explanation is that as the only available method to create handmade photographic prints directly from color slide film. It is a direct-positive, meaning that no negatives are created or used, unlike traditional color processes. Yellow, magenta and cyan dyes are incorporated into a white-opaque polyester based paper and bleached during processing to reveal their latent color. Likely the artist shot these images in her large format camera with a slow exposure, to achieve the motion blur. and later altered the color effects in the developing in the dark room.
The artist has said, "I try to capture the sense of time passing. I hope that the photographs will be a reminder that we are on the edge of a century in which the fate of many life forms, including our own, will be determined, and the decision of whether to save or relinquish landscapes such as these will be of increasing urgency."
Amazing. Thanks for the answer. This is very helpful!
You're welcome! It is a truly difficult process, and increasingly rare as production of the materials has recently ended.
