About Les Roberts

Photography has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I had my first home processed. Black and White print published at the age of sixteen. I became involved in a photographic organization running correspondence courses and writing regular journal articles. As an educator I also promoted photography as an effective means of communication across the ability spectrum and different nationalities.

Welcome to Chromography.
Some time ago I accidentally spilt a collection of different paint bases into a vessel containing water. I observed a negative reaction taking place. The different bases were avoiding one another. This intrigued me and set we wondering if I could reverse this negative reaction. From the beginning I realised that another element was required. I began by adding different, colourless liquids to a mix of bases. Eventually I found a liquid that reversed the process I had seen initially. Whole new images emerged driven by a chemical reaction. I also found that a different mix of paint bases required a different liquid additive to get a positive reaction.. Those that worked I called activators. With their addition a whole new reaction took place leading to very positive and unique results. Sadly this was not an action leading to a permanent, lasting image. When the reaction drew to a conclusion the image deteriorated into what looked like a muddy mess. A photograph would be the only lasting record. The developments that took place were in no way controlled. This was eventually overcome by the injection, with syringes, of small quantities different activators at key times and certain locations during the process. This gave a certain degree of control, and with practice some interesting results.

Currently further development of this process is planned. Who knows what the results will be.
Whatever, for me the development of Chromography is still in its infancy. The future has to be explored.
