Manipulated Images – Each photo-painting starts with a Polaroid SX70 photo that is manipulated (the emulsion is moved with a tool) – and then scanned into a computer. Then the image is enhanced in Photoshop and printed onto archival watercolor paper. The final print is hand-painted with pastels, inks, and oil pencils. Each print is unique and will differ slightly from the image on this website. All prints are sold with a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee, dated, and signed by Kira.
Color-Lens Based Prints – These images are either from traditional film-based color photographs that are scanned or from digital photographs. They are then printed onto watercolor paper or onto fine art photographic paper. These are printed from film negatives, slides, digital files, or a combination of these with painting and colorizing.
Hand Painted Black and White Images – These images are from traditional black and while silver based film and silver based fiber photographic paper. Most are selenium toned. These images are becoming more rare, as Kira currently does very little traditional darkroom work and the process is becoming more expensive and it is difficult to get supplies. Kira is currently also printing her black and white imagery onto water color paper and sometimes painting them with pastels, inks and oil pencils.
