Victoria’s original black-and-white photographs are the basis for her luminous images. Each print is then meticulously hand-colored using a tinting technique that gives each image a mystical quality.
Hand-coloring photographs is a delicate and time-honored technique used by photographers for well over a century. By applying paint with cotton wrapped tightly around a toothpick, the artist rubs the paint onto the photograph until the color is smooth and even. This is the technique that was used before the invention of color film. Each photograph is an original print, colored individually in a limited edition of 40 prints.
