Apparently I’m a lousy photographer... crap artist... garbage writer... and am getting too old to ride fixie and love French women. But, I have 25 different Tumblr themes ranging from arts and cafés to Leicas and Volkswagens, and don’t flood those streams with endless rubbish but select quality images. So to see all of my shit follow updates at "Ed Buziak / Fotoformat" on Facebook.

"Digital Effluvia" ~ Adrien Majewski, ca. 1898.

Effluvia from a hand resting on a photographic plate ~ A magnetiser and well-known healer, Majewski made several series of experiments in 1898/99 in France to record the magnetic fluid (contemporary accounts mention its rare powers) on a sensitised plate. The photographs were mostly obtained by the process called humid, in which the sensitised plate was immersed in a hydro-quinone bath the side covered with gelatin facing downward. The hand was resting on the glass side of the plate or was held a few centimeters away. The pose generally lasted 20 mins.
