Photographer Matthew Cetta creates incredible images using photographic film modified with household chemicals.
Photogenic Alchemy is an exercise in controlled chaos and a study in the science of art. By breaking down silver salts and celluloid to it’s elemental form, I’ve created a dark and gritty apocalyptic world. It is a world that seems to be dissolving right before our eyes. Toxic and fascinating, each new roll of film left me intrigued. I couldn’t wait to try the next substance on my ever increasing list.
If you are interested in purchasing some of Mathew's unique emulsions he is currently promoting a kickstarter that would allow him to produce and distribute his emulsions.
