Untitled Selfies

Evla Vlasicova

I used testing photopapers I needed to make photos in my darkroom. Always as I work in my darkroom, the 1st I try to test time, aperture, developer, fixer and to get right results I try to find optimum using testing photostrips. The time and chemistry made effects over them and then I combined them to this collage.

Evla Vlasicova (Slovakia) come from Prievidza. After graduating from the Technical University in Zvolen, she decided to start a family. She was discovering Slovakia and people in different cities: Bratislava, Košice, Humenné. She did not come to Bratislava to study or work, like many other people, but because of love. She found a job and now divide her free time between her family and amateur art photography. 

Total lack of interest in digital technologies forced her to learn original historical photographic techniques and to use mainly mechanical camera without batteries. She only use analog methods: Cyanotype, Van Dyke, Bromoil, Wetplate collodion process and Lith-print. She mix all the necessary solutions at home according to original formulas with my own improvements.
