Mushroom Plantation

Images made of an abandoned mushroom plantation found inside the mountain. The mouldy mushrooms were extremely fragile and could not be touched or taken out of the cave to photograph in daylight.

Latent Fingerprints

A collection consisting of 4 documents found in a small archive in the Dutch village Ulenstraten kept by a former employee. The documents have been treated with the chemical 1,2-indanedione to reveal the hidden fingerprints. Many different types of paper – although looking clean – can carry a thin film of dirt and sweat particles that show the personal contact that people had with the object.
