    C-type photo on Dibond

    When my newborn son arrived home I became preoccupied with disinfecting the flat, which involved killing bugs and insects that had made their way inside. I began printing laser images of these flattened creatures by placing them into 35mm glass slide carriers. This process graduated to desktop scanners where I could directly scan the crushed insect. Generally the scan resembled nothing at first and I would look for facets of an image that could be manipulated into something identifiable.
