Jana Epstein

Jana creates her Black and White images by using natural light to photograph architecture and nature as well as the human figure. She individually prints each photograph using traditional darkroom techniques on fiber base, mat surface on Photographic paper. She then selenium tones the custom prints for archival purposes. 

Jana enhances her images by selectively adding color to her black and white photographs. She paints each color piece by hand using Prisma and Marshal colored pencils, blending the color, with her own special process, into the emulsion of the photographic paper.

Jana does not usually add color to her images of the human figure. She does want to distract the intent of the subject matter which is pure and beautiful on its own.
