Photo etching Victim

here are a few failed attempts at my prints from my 3 week photo etching course.

the Image chosen is of a Hiroshima/Nagasaki victim, etched onto copper and printed with intaglio ink. The image is reversed from the original, as i was interested in the forms of the scaring as an abstract. This will hopefully become a series looking at the body as a landscape.

the etching plate for whatever reason didn’t show enough grain/noise to produce a contrasted image as i would have liked. i was hoping for richer tones and much more depth. I suspect this was possibly happened into the acid bath or not adding enough noise to the acetate sheet.

next week i will try another image, white on black paper.
