I have chosen to work in an alternative printing process of photography that dates back to the 1880s. Gum Bichromate prints could be called photographically controlled watercolors". Even though the image may resemble a color photograph, it is a fabrication of layers of pigment and hardened gum Arabic. Each piece is an original.
