Michael Donnor Statement


Artist Statement
For a time we are but wandering; my camera and mind drag in the slop, in constant limbo between futility and serenity, photographing this world before us.


Process Statement
Many techniques are used to further convey the concept in each image, freezing, melting, scratching, and cutting are a few. Once the negative is finished, the control of depth of field is done through the enlarger, allowing the choice in each print of where the focus will be. The prints are silver gelatin; archivally toned in tea and selenium, they are signed, dated, titled and editioned in ink by the artist own hand. The edges are then burned and encaustic is applied in layers, finishing each piece from conception to print. They are one of a kind within an edition; from the tones to the lettering, burning and encaustic finish. No two prints are the same.
