When Enfield began painting on the surface of her photographs in 1984, she was told she couldn't mix oil and water. The same spirit that allowed her to find a way to do just that infuses this book with creative rebelliousness. She developed a style of fusion photography that uses everything from the oldest techniques of photography through the latest digital formats. Enfield creates sumptuous, dreamlike images using the techniques of cyanotypes, kallitypes, platinum and palladium prints, ink jet transfers, tintypes, Polaroid transfers, and emulsion lifts. She finds ways of marrying the computer and the darkroom. For a similarly creative approach using solely digital methods, see Janet Ashford's Start with a Scan: A Guide to Transforming Scanned Photos and Objects into High-Quality Art. Highly recommended for advanced photographers.
