Gerald Incandela is recognized for his unique photographic process, by which he conceptually merges drawing and photography. More about windows real money casino www.mapleleafonlinecasino.com/windows/ by Maple Leaf! In the darkroom, Incandela transforms the images captured with the lens of his camera by creating new compositions though the combination of multiple negatives in a panorama like effect. During the course of developing the large format, black and white prints, Incandela selectively applies developer and fixer on paper with a brush as to reveal and animate selected elements of the captured image. This process also allows for him to create both warm and cool tones on the same unique, master print. Transforming the chemistry of photography into a charcoal or ink-like media and using a drawing-like process, Incandela employs his own bold, meaningful gestures to portray and retrace his subjects conveying his intuitive understanding and visual exploration of them.
