Oyster Shell Ghosts

Woman in Summer Dress

Found negative, at least 60 years old. Young woman in a patterned summer dress probably late 1940s early 1950s. The image is printed on an ancient oyster shell that was mudlarked from the Thames foreshore near London Bridge. The shell has seen some damage and layers have flaked off over time. This leads to an differentiation in the way the emulsion sticks to the shell giving different surfaces and textures.
