    James Welling rayographs/photograms

    I have been doing some research recently on a photographer called James Welling and I would like to know how does he put the colour into them when making them through the enlarger? below is an example of what I mean. Hope someone can help.

    Taking a WAG it looks like he contacts a B&W shadowgram negative to color paper, exposing it with colored light or with a color gel mask in the light path. Or it's digital...

    If I had to guess then I would say they were bleached and toned with different toners after the photogram was produced.

    Looks similar to the colour in the photograms of Adam Fuss. Like Mr Frizza said, I believe his work is cibachrome.

    from the mouth of the artist himself

    "First I take Plumbago blooms, about 6-8 stalks to work with in a session, and in the dark, I take a sheet of 8×10 inch film out, put it under the enlarger, place a few flowers on the film and expose to light. Then I process the black and white negative and let it dry. I do about 6-8 at a go. I then contact print the negatives to see what they look like, and I cull the best ones and print them 37 × 46 inches using a color mural enlarger on Kodak Endura Metallic paper. In the first Flowers I made exposures using a filtration I knew would give me certain colors…red, green, orange, purple, indigo, yellow, blue. In the next group, 2005 Flowers, I used 2-3 filter combinations, shading parts of the paper and making second exposures with other filter sets…"
