Dirty Dozen is a series of photographs with all the dirt, dust, specs and scratches left on the negatives to be visible after scanning. The aim is to explore the intricate dialogue between process and subject and between what is acceptable and unacceptable in photographic process.
When displayed online against a pure white background, it is almost impossible to see the star-like dirt and dots that are all over the photos. The darker background below is to try and bring out these imperfections as perfectly as possible.
