Bromoil print

"This one small bromoil print changed my philosophy, my direction and my methodology of the bromoil process. Heretofore I had worked in only black or brown inks. I had followed exactly the procedures and the rules layed down by generations of bromoil masters. This print changed all of that. It was my first venture in inking a print in multi colors. And it was the first time I had inked a print with abandon ... and with a carefree outlook and attitude. Towards the end of the process of inking this print I purposely scratched the surface of the image with rough steel wool. I flicked coffee onto the print with my fingers. I had suddenly learned that bromoil could be more than a photographic process of yesteryears. It could be an art medium!!! No longer did I feel bound by the traditional rules of bromoil. No longer did I feel the necessity to use the tools and the methods of the past. I was free at last!" (Gene Laughter, August 2006)
