This method is entrancing and the end result is stunning. From PhoGoTraphy:
We spoke with Anna about the alternative photographic process used in the video and she was happy to give us an explanation.
Gumoil or Gumoil printing – it’s a method for producing photos with gum, chromium salts and oil paints. It’s a painstaking but very expressive photographic method that combines unique authoring and spark picture with documentary photography. Through the use of materials for art works – cotton paper and oil paints, archival photos have unique properties that are comparable to paintings on canvas. Nevertheless, Gumoil print is 100% a photographic process. To obtain an image I do not use any additional chemicals or chemical elements other than the above. I do not chlorine bleach pattern. All that is necessary for a successful work is quality paper and oil colors, properly selected chemical composition and faithful exposition.
