Alternative processes make your photographs one-of-a-kind works of art by using non-typical materials that yield a unique result every time, even if the same process is followed. We will experiment with gloss and satin mediums, a toaster oven,  laser jet prints and a special transparency film and solution that lifts the image off the transparency and releases it on an alternative surface.  All materials included in class fee.
