these are part of my “nightmare” series I did when I transferred to my current university. it’s sort of funny looking at them, because now I really hate them….but the process was fun and challenging at the time. each image is at the very least, three negatives. I didn’t want to do the weird Jerry Uelsmann thing where I used separate enlargers for each negative, I instead stacked them on top of one another and used a 3 or 4 contrast filter. the weird bird mask one is a paper negative. I was strangely obsessed with doing paper negatives and originally the whole series was going to be paper negatives…as in negative = nightmares and positive = reality, but I ended up hating that idea and only did a few of them for the project.
