Time and Matter Photography
Over thirty years ago I started developing what I now call Time and Matter Photography; pictures made entirely of nearly any material or matter. Unlike conventional photography using silver halide or inkjet, Time and Matter Photography creates a historical, collectible artifact that can posses the emotional, or spiritual based on the matter used. Pictures can be made entirely from the ashes of a loved one, hair, soil, or nearly any material. allowing ideas to be turned into photographic art that is defined in part by the material itself. – Bill Fink
