This paper develops, in a literary form, thematic material derived from fourteen photographically etched metal pieces, two photo-serigraphs, and six photographically produced intaglio prints. The narrative takes the form of an allegorical fantasy which contains a practical attitude toward photographic alchemy. New insights are provided into the origins and nature of the photographic medium in the light of the symbolic context of the artwork.
Illustrations of the artwork from which this paper derives are provided.
