Strange brew - film processed in wacky chemicals

August 19, 2013

Experimental New York photographer Matthew Cetta has come up with a bizarre way

of altering his images - by destroying the film with liquids he finds

around the house.

The quirky artist uses his unusual technique to create stunning,

abstract prints that look like they have been taken with a filter or

altered on Photoshop.

After a film has been used, Matthew soaks it in different chemicals to

give each picture a unique effect before it is developed.

He has tried lemon juice, nail varnish remover, hydrogen peroxide,

alcohol, petrol, absinthe, and turpentine.
