Hunted or Gathered #2

This evocative autochrome photo by experimental photographer Heinrich Kuhn (1866–1944), titled Miss Mary and Edeltrude at the Hill Crest (circa 1910), demonstrates a malleability of the photographic process that anticipates Photoshop.

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.
