Retouch (2015)

The works in the series Retouch are hand printed, fibre-based, monochrome photographic prints, which are altered using an extreme retouching technique - a hammer and metal punches. These excessive incursions are governed by the imperfections on the print surface, like a hair or a drying mark, a scratch or an uneven tone. The holes themselves generate further imperfections, leading to more holes and these leading to others.
Retouch, White, Black and Grey were first exhibited during the Getting Better and Worse at the Same Time exhibition.
