Diwan Manna - Fine Art Photography

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.
