Project ‘Heinrich’ (Working Title) takes two boxes of glass plates by an Austrian Alpine Photographer Heinrich Schildknecht (1874 Hamburg, Germany - 1959 Graz, Austria) as a starting point of the project.


The initial stage of the project studies the glass plates loaned from the family of the photographer using the darkroom facilities at my host AA2A University, Universities of Hertfordshire.


I am hoping that this process would reveal layers of marks and stories carried by the glass plates as well as the details of the images captured by Heinrich on the top of mountains around 1906 and determine the direction I would take with my project using this material.
