Luna 2009

Photograph over wood (Emulsion of silver nitrate over pine)
Six photos 50 x 50cm

The photographic series Bitch´s monologue was made with silver nitrate over wood; A technique used in the XIX century. This work wants to question the idea of reproducion through photographic means. Each one of this photos requiered at least seven hours of developing and work as monotipes.

The name of the series makes reference to the popular expression towards some women. However, the model is just my dog and all photo sessions were about the denying of her identity through the game of the object know as the Elizabethan collar.
