Decay, Rebirth, Portrait of a Fern i and ii

Sustainable silver gelatin prints, produced with fern developer.

Exhibited alongside A Forest, A Stage, An Imprint, these four sustainable silver gelatin prints exhibited depict ferns as both a being and an environment, imagining them simultaneously as a site of queer history and a queer subject within themselves. 

The photographs were produced with natural ingredients in replacement of traditional darkroom chemicals, with ferns being the main component of the photographic developer. As a result, ferns make up both the subject matter and printing mediums of the works.

See each individual photograph: Rebirth, Decay, Portrait of a Fern i and Portrait of a Fern ii.

Exhibited alongside A Forest, A Stage, An Imprint at to tease to hold these stories through and through, Glasgow Project Room, 2023.
