"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

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
