1984 Altered *** St@teS.... Images Burnt with FiRE

In 1984 my parents farmhouse burnt down, which stored my belongings. Upon returning I found in the ashes some slides I had taken years earlier. The slides were remarkably transformed by the fire, then the winter with snow , freezing rain and then all of the summer's treatment.... until I dug them out in the fall, when I finally returned. So amazed by the few that had images left on them , they looked like they were photographs of the decisive moment of nuclear destruction. Later I decided to immitate the process by painting the slides with common household toxic ingredients, like fingernail polish, Easy-Off, airplane glue, magic markers, and then burning them with fire.
*******On some slides the images were burnt off then reburnt on again without burning through the slide,this is my DoubleBurN Technique.******** A real phoenix and the fire story. This portfolio was also called Meltdown at one time.
Published in Darkroom Photography Magazine twice. Photo Life and various newspapers. The image of Flowering Destruction,"Woman in Market" won me a bronze medal at the New York City International Art Competition 1985, and a Gold Award in an International Environmental Photography show in Lithuania called "Earth Everybodies Home".1996.
