Diwan Manna - Fine Art Photography
My conceptual work is a confluence of painting acting and photography. I use painting as a backdrop and actors/models with painted bodies in front. I expose on transparency film and make prints directly from the transparency on color photographic paper as one would do with negative film. The printing involves rather long exposures of burning and dodging and I make extensive use of the filters to enhance colour and density in certain areas. The total exposure time could be as long as two hours in some cases. I have been doing this kind of work since 1983.
