Valley

Recently, I have been printing a series of images on Unryu paper. Unryu paper comes in many variations but in this case it has long strands of kozo fiber against a thin and translucent mulberry paper backing. In Japan, the name "unryu" means "cloud dragon paper". I apply a thin coat of inkaid matte precoat to each sheet, hang them to dry, and then print the image on my inkjet printer.

This image was taken with an Agfa Isoly camera with a Holga lens.

  2. I love the sense of depth in this, and the light filtering in. I bet it looks even more gorgeous in real life!
