Lambda on Dibond 100x77cm
I chose to transform a photo of an ordinary object – a lamp at home (click the left thumbnail to see the original B&W photo before the transformation) – without the use of one. While the original picture is black and white, my use of a camera and a normal printer gradually turned it into a color one and changed its look. I never intend to kill the image. All I want is to change it with a camera which does not only help capture an object at a particular moment but is also capable of enabling transformation.
