The Black Dog

This week’s Photo Challenge was entitled The Black Dog and it asked participants to take a picture on the theme of depression. This is my entry.

This is a self-portrait with a two-second exposure time so I could move my head and blur my face. The negative was taken with a large format camera (my Horseman 45HD) and is 5×4″ in size – big enough for me to burn a hole through my heart with a chef’s blowtorch. I scanned the negative and applied a cyanotype effect digitally.
