Editorial Reviews

Review

"Horovitz (director, graduate art therapy program, Nazareth Coll.) offers a variety of techniques to incorporate photography into art in novel ways. Detailed, step-by-step projects walk readers through transferring images onto fabric, polymer clay, glass, metal, wood, and other surfaces. Fine-art photographers have been using solvents to transfer photographic prints to alternative surfaces for decades, but the advent of digital imaging has greatly widened over the last ten years the possibilities for this technique. Horovitz discusses both familiar and new methods, including basic information on essential software like Photoshop and Studio Artist. This is a natural complement to your library’s digital photography and crafts sections." - Library Journal

I used to get depressed with Image Transfer books, feeling like I needed to go out and buy myself a ton of new materials to be able to start dabbling. That is until I discovered Ellen Horovitz's book, Digital Image Transfer: Creating Art with Your Photography. Here's a book for every art room, with transfer techniques for every budget. Every possible material and supply combination seems to have been considered. Horovitz's book is quite different from the other books that I have encountered. I no longer feel that the right materials are just around the next corner. She's got me covered! In fact this book is so thorough, and generous with images, that it is very easy to follow! And it seems no matter what sort of digital image manipulation program we might use, no matter what sort of printer we might have access to, no matter what sort of materials we want to work with (from glass to polymer clay to leather and everything in between) we can get ideas for our work and we can actually start creating right away, even as we read!

One of my favorite chapters is the last one, which is a highly creative chapter that includes sections on Cyanotype creation, replicating an early printing process on natural fiber surfaces, instant film transfers, and byproduct art. "More often than not, artistic souls find the beauty in nearly everything that surrounds them, even in the discarded products from various transfer techniques!" Ellen says. And she's right.

Another great aspect of this book is that Horovitz has access to many very creative students who are very willing to explore and try out methods and materials in new ways, and I suspect willing to compete with one another to see how far they could take these techniques.

I wish this book had been around years ago. it would have saved me countless dollars in products I didn't need or that failed. I totally agree with Lani Gerity Glanville's review!! Horovitz illustrates how to use everything from sophisticated software to household products to achieve professional results with photographic images. To boot, I have learned how to make wearable art from photographs that I never dreamed possible. I love my new dress that I made using Citra Solv, one of the products mentioned in this book. Thank you for this ground breaking book!!!

I stop short of giving Horovitz's book five full stars for a couple of reasons that I will detail below--but they are issues easy to overcome by most readers. Above all, this is a creative, inspirational text filled with usable techniques that you will want to try immediately!

In general Image Transfer provides a series of hands-on,step-by-step projects that allow artists to push digital imagery into off-screen compositions. Horovitz covers more methods for transferring inkjet images than most of the other books I've read on the subject and includes methods for applying images to wood, glass, metal and paper using a variety of solvents and materials. Though not is precision-oriented as some step-by-step texts, she provides enough working photographs for the artist to proceed.

The entire first chapter is devoted to a rather basic guide to creating digital imagery which I felt would be better served if she expanded it into a second book on the production of digital imaging through computer programs. As it stands, it was not useful to me (I already know how to do it--or else I wouldn't be buying the text to begin with) and it may not be detailed enough for someone who has never done it before. However, it took up little space in the book so is not really an issue.

Throughout the text, she encourages readers to be innovative, experimental and to embrace all manner of texture and surface, which is wonderful. She shows readers how to use ghost images, save transfer leftovers to be recycled into new pieces and even how to incorporate shrink plastic images into more traditional work. Her receptiveness to experimentation is what makes this a strong enough title to purchase, especially since many related books are more conservative in their approach.

Ellen Horovitz has written perhaps the quintessential book on photographic digital image transfer. Her writing and techniques are simple and straightforward, and geared to artists of all levels, whether professional or first-timers. Dr. Ellen has projects and ideas for every budget, with a vast variety of suggested resources, including everyday objects found right in your home. This is an enjoyable read as well as a "go to" guide and excellent reference. This book promises to be a great teaching tool for many years to come.

This book is all what I was looking for. I am an artist and photographer who wanted to merge both techniques and tried a lot of things. When I read the book, the world opened for me as a new one artistically speaking. It is fun to read, easy to understand and techniques are really something. I have already produced two jobs with excellent results. Give it a go, you will never repent.
