Brandi Adams 1 George Smyth

 (See below link to learn about Bromoil printing)

George Smyth combines pinhole photography with an alternative process called Bromoil printing. This process take photos and turns them into ink prints that look very much like aqua tint prints. His images are mostly of everyday people out on the streets going about their days but his process makes the images look very grainy and dream like.

I really enjoy this particular image because of the crazy lighting in the background. I also appreciate that the figure is not all there. The head is somewhat hard to make out but the viewer can still tell that there is a figure in the picture. Also the blurriness of the figure adds movement to the photo.
