Michal Macků photography
Gellages, Carbon prints
Michal Macku (*1963), the renown Czech photographer creates his works using his own photographic technique named Gellage and his discovery of this unique process has cemented his name in the history of contemporary photography. The technique ‘Gellage’ consists of the transfer of exposed and fixed photographic emulsion onto paper. This transparent and plastic material makes it possible to reshape and reform the original images, changing their relationships and endowing them with new meanings during the transfer.
