Outer Inner Space

Outer Inner Space: collograph,  solar plate insert on gampi paper, 30x22 more or less. In the dark ages of humanity after I got a master’s degree in cell biology from Dartmouth, I was a darkroom assistant for an electron microscopist and printed his work. The inner image is from one of those photographs which any kid, who paid attention in a good 7th grade life science class, would recognize as mitochondria. Gampi paper is a rice paper that is almost transparent and amazingly strong. A solar plate is a way of producing a plate without etching acid.
