Shroud of Turin




A photograph which has taken a photo of itself! Actually, a beautiful 19th century vignette photo of a young woman, printed on paper, which was then tipped into a small paper folder along with an early cellophane insert. The original photographic image has leached through the protective cover leaving a ghost image, which has then in turn also passed the image onto the other side of the paper sleeve. Three images for the price of one, but you would have had to wait over 100 years for the cloned photos to have developed.

  1. I have several of these in my collection. I have been told about my images that they were platinum prints, and that it was the platinum that made the chemical burn. I have not had anybody confirm this, but my photos with chemical transfer do have that peculiar platinum cast to them. That does not mean that there weren't other chemical formulations (there were thousands of chemical combinations used) that caused the same effect.
