Greetings friends of Petlamb

This month I bring you two new images from my Water Damaged Pencil of Nature series. They have been a long-time coming because up until recently I have been preoccupied with Slap Pals get sacked — an art improvement program which finished up at the George Paton Gallery just before Easter. The documentation from the show can be found here.

The two images this month again come from William Henry Fox Talbot's Pencil of Nature.

Water Damaged Pencil of Nature — Plate VII references Leaf of a Plant whilst Water Damaged Pencil of Nature — Plate XXIV Full Page uses an image called A Fruit Piece as the source image.

In Leaf of a Plant Fox Talbot describes to the reader the process of contact printing. He does this by using a leaf as the negative and then repeating the contact printing process to achieve a positive print. With A Fruit Piece, he explains photography's ability to produce infinite prints from a negative, so long as it has been properly made and maintained.
