Andrew Thompson, Green Landscape (2016), chemically altered and sewn chromogenic print, 8 x 10 inches.

In Cut, Punctured, Manipulated, Thompson willingly embraces photographic flaws and imperfections. The artist challenges traditional photographic ideals by chemically altering prints using silver halides, a toxic chemical that allows color dyes to slide across the page, and also by sewing directly onto the prints.
