Emulsion stores its memory in latent images. Time passes, and the information sits there, qiuetly, in the film’s “subconscious”, without revealing itself. In some cases, it would sit there for years on end, so that even the person who once made sure the memory is preserved has no recollection of having done that. As fate should have it, these non-existent images can either see the light of day, or never be born at all.

I first saw this video on YouTube when I received your email. The photobook is a special creation and concept. Congratulations. Was there any other process involved with the negatives besides scanning them?
No, only scanning and typical standart contrast correction.
Thank you, Pavel. They looked like extra-ordinary negatives. Must be your film wizardry showing through.
