invited guest: Josephine Sacabo

Some months ago I discovered the fascinating work of Joséphine Sacabo. I find her dark, subjective and beautiful photographs really interesting and is happy to present some of her work on The F Blog. She uses poetry as the genisis of her work and is for example inspired by Rilke, Juan Rulfo and Baudelarie. Her photographs are all black and white silver gelatin prints and she often uses multiple negatives, various tonings, oil washes, solarizations and flashing during the process. ”There are many steps involved in creating the final print and these are as important to me as the capturing of the image”, she says.
