Photography is magic!
DESCRIPTIONSomething very unusual happened to me recently! While cleaning the basement, I came across a large cardboard package containing my photos from the series Masks, which I exhibited 18 years ago (2004). Since they were packed and stored in the basement after the exhibition, I haven't moved them from there and I forgot about them. Later, there were shelves with jars of flowers that overwintered in the house. There was also occasional watering, and apparently a leak on the aforementioned cardboard package. I opened that package today. More or less, all the photos survived, except for this one, which was on the very edge of the cardboard, on which water occasionally dripped. As these photos were made with chemistry on photographic paper - there was a chemical reaction. My initial dismay at the state of forgotten photos was replaced by a new zeal to create. The Universe must have wanted it that way! This photo experienced its reincarnation!
