Paul Graham, Fuji Fujicolor Super HR400, 400asa, Beyond Caring, 1984
To create his "Films" series, Graham magnified the different film types he had exposed in earlier work—thereby recycling his own images into a second use. This is a magnified image of the emulsion on the surface of developed color film. The color dye speckles are created by chemical reactions in the development process. In a highly detailed micro view, we see the blue, green and red dye layers that bond with silver salts to create color-sensitive crystals.
