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


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.
