Photographic Alchemy

Ever wondered what image would look like it prints were developed with fluids you find around the house rather than your traditional emulsion? It’s called Photographic Alchemy and it was brought to life by photographer Matthew Cetta in his latest project.

“It came to a point where I wanted to explore the medium of film itself. I embarked on a journey that has led me here. Where is here? Here is a place full of what ifs. What if I electrified my film and then froze it afterward? What if I introduced absinthe to the emulsion? What if I was to soak the film in Ambien before I shot it?”
