Can anyone shed light (pun) on this technique ?

    My Dad has a couple of framed prints in his house and I was curious what type of technique made them.. I'm not sure if they are analog or digital. I believe digital. Can anyone comment about how this was accomplished and how I could replicate this using analog?

    Thanks..

    Those look like photograms. Perhaps the objects were compressed under glass to minimize bleed around the edges.

    To replicate this in analog is easy if you have the right things for it: take some grass or weed, go to the darkroom and put them onto a piece of photographic paper, put a glass plate over it, expose, develop en fix.

    That's all !
