All the photographs are captured on a range of different photographic films using analogue cameras. The film used has been selected based on how the colour tones, textures and characteristics of that film match with the journey or subject being photographed.
Along with the film selection, image exposures, filters, lighting, and editing are adjusted within the camera using various equipment. This analogue method of working gives the photographs a "documented in the field" quality to them. The aim is for the images to resemble early photographic documentation from explorers and navigators.
After the light-sensitive film has been exposed, the film is processed in a darkroom environment to reveal the captured images. Depending on the type of film and the desired exposure, texture and colour of the image different chemicals and development processes are used. After processing, the film is printed onto light-sensitive silver halide paper.
Chromogenic prints are produced from the processed negatives in a darkroom environment. This involves carefully exposing silver halide paper to form a latent image from the negatives. The paper is then exposed to a series of chemicals that convert the latent image into the final print.
Fuji Crystal Archive silver halide paper is used to create the chromogenic prints. All printed photographs come with a mat board backing and window. The matted photographs are packaged in a clear plastic archival sleeve for protection.
