This process reminds me of the first silver argentium processing that I became acquainted with back in the 70s with a photographer named Jack Jeffers. Jack was once refused a showing at the Corcoran Art Gallery for being too "colloquial".

He was a master at taking everyday subjects in rural Virginia and transforming them into Dust Bowl era prints. He amazed me and for a while had a friendship that resulted in me getting one of his prized prints that hung in his own family room. I treasure that meeting....and he influenced me in taking a picture that might otherwise be considered "everyday" and turning it into photo art.
