split tone / lith prints
Heracleum Mantegazzianum, better known as giant hogweed, is increasingly seen in the Dutch landscape. This plant of exotic origin is both admired and hated. Dangerous weeds, impressive ornamental plant, intractable usurer; its appearance evokes divergent responses.
Fascinated by the explosive vigor of the species, Linus Harms captured growth, flowering and decay of this giant during four seasons.
And while photography was digitizing at a rapid pace, he chose to work on black and white film and baryta paper and use labor intensive techniques such as "split toning" and "Lith printing".
Because the original work is limited to unique single prints, the negatives were digitized and processed to nearly identical images.
These high quality prints are available in a limited edition of 6 - 10 pcs.
