Photogenic Alchemy: Michael Cetta Drops Some Science on his Shots. (Photography)


Just came across an article on Wired profiling the innovative work of nyc based photographer Michael Cetta. After beginning his career as a re-toucher, he soon became obsessed with the quest for perfection before realizing the inevitable; perfection is boring. This led Cetta to begin experimenting with his films by introducing them to a variety of corrosive elements (from Absinthe to Vinegar) which produces some very interesting effects. Maybe Cetta says it best here; “Photogenic Alchemy is an exercise in controlled chaos and a study in the science of art.” Check out more images below and go here for more.
