This work is an homage to anatomical science and the study of the human body.
Momento Mori (Circular) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of human skull studies, vintage architectural photography and anatomical illustrations. The digital negative was then contact printed onto paper that had been hand-brushed with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour.
