Overview

Ellen G. Horovitz, an inspiring artist and teacher, guides readers through imaginative photo projects that transform cherished analog and digital images into works of art. Horovitz expands on traditional photo transfer, taking it to an entirely new level using digital software techniques and a wide array of innovative materials and methods, including cocoa powder, Citrasolve, copper, and packing tape. Starting with traditional photos, digital files, and instant photo emulsions, Horovitz fashions 2D and 3D art pieces, showing readers how to use conventional processes and new exploratory techniques-even left-over materials-in the creation of meaningful photo art.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Horovitz (director, graduate art therapy program, Nazareth Coll.) offers a variety of techniques to incorporate photography into art in novel ways. Detailed, step-by-step projects walk readers through transferring images onto fabric, polymer clay, glass, metal, wood, and other surfaces. Fine-art photographers have been using solvents to transfer photographic prints to alternative surfaces for decades, but the advent of digital imaging has greatly widened over the last ten years the possibilities for this technique. Horovitz discusses both familiar and new methods, including basic information on essential software like Photoshop and Studio Artist. This is a natural complement to your library’s digital photography and crafts sections." - Library Journal
