Technical Informations.

The technique I used is not a photographic technique. Wax is used by sculptors or fine artists but not in combination with photographic chemicals. The image one can see here is the result of a lithographic film developed as normal and then placed inside a tray with hot wax. When the wax becomes colder the lith film is traped inside. The image is obscure and it needs light behind it in order to be seen. The colouring is a result of dyes which can be diso;ved into wax. I either keep the wax plate with the image as an object or I photograph it litter from the back side and I create a new photograph.
