Direct analogue C-Prints of Baltic Amber show the inside of these 20 million year old relicts of a pre-human time. Baltic Amber is a mostly orange and hardened resin which often includes insects and plants from a long ago time. This indexical characteristic but also the orange color remind of the photographic negative. The Baltic Amber is being used as a negative in the analogue darkroom for these photographic prints and allows the natures’ physical memory to be translated by this human technique of time-preservation into an abstract vision.
