Hans Danuser

The portrayal of color was a challenge right from the start. At first, photographers conveyed it in incremental tones of grey. Around 1900 there were all manner of experiments with emulsions and fine-printing processes until, around 1950, the C-print developed by Agfa and Kodak took hold. In order to approximate the natural way of seeing as closely as possible, Hans Danuser works with true colors. He washes out the silver in the analogue prints using the latest techniques of chemical processing and replaces it, in the case of his desert pictures, with color particles from grains of sand he has brought with him.
