Featured gallery: Erno-Erik Raitanen's Bacteriograms

“Bacteriograms” by Finnish artist Erno-Erik Raitanen. These images are created by cultivating bacteria samples from the artist’s body on a gelatin surface of a film negative. The bacteria consume the gelatin and in the process produce shapes and colours. These degraded negatives are then developed in a darkroom. Be sure to visit his website for other intriguing conceptual and photographic projects.
