Between the Leaves focuses on the ephemeral quality of light. Behind each photograph is Cross's hand in the physical construction of what is set up in front of the camera, or through a cathartic printing process. The artist works with a range of photographic media, including 4" x 5" color negatives, and gum bichromate printing to create photographs. After a strong degree of photoshop manipulation, the prints are made through the historic gum bichromate process. With this lengthy process, each color is printed as a single layer, resulting in fragile, painterly, and unique prints. Although large in physical presence, these prints are meant to express small invitations to reverie.
