POTD: The Process #4

POTD: The Process #4The Process #4 Bozeman, Montana 2013

When you print photographs using an inkjet printer, even though the ink dries to the touch almost immediately, it continues to outgas for sometime afterwards. This outgassing can fog glass if a print is framed too early. Stacked prints can be interleaved with sheets of plain paper in order to speed the outgassing process. The interleaving paper absorbs the gas as it comes off the prints and because this somewhat dampens the paper, an impression of the edges of the print sometimes appear on the interleaving paper.  Those edge patterns from multiple prints, lit by dappled sunlight coming in my studio window, made for the very nice abstract composition seen here.
