Hunted or Gathered #1

These gathered images are nineteenth century dageurrotypes. Because of the technology used in producing daguerrotypes, over time they were prone to scratching and corroding in sometimes quite dramatic and meaningful ways. While making Unforgotten, images such as these offered ways of capturing elusive ideas and meanings.

Making the artwork for Unforgotten required extensive hunting or gathering of any image with the merest hint of usefulness to the project. This series, Hunted or Gathered, looks at images that either sparked inspiration, were created with the book in mind (photo or otherwise), and other images unearthed or tracked down through chance encounters or specific research.
