Worms. Book Design: Hans Gremmen. Printed entirely on black paper.‘‘Cette
montagne c’est moi’ is about me. Translated literally, it means ‘This mountain
that’s me’. It was initially an association of image and meaning that led to the
subject matter. The carbon in coal is the same carbon referred to in carbon
printing. Carbon printing is a photographic printing process that is excellently
suited for reproducing dark tones. For this project I developed a variation on
the carbon printing process, a photographic printing technique from the 19th
century. I took a bit of coal from every mountain I photographed. I then ground
this coal into a pigment that I used to make photographic paper. I used this
paper to make a print of a mountain with the coal originating from that
mountain. In other words, the object of the photo, the mountain, has become one
with the subject of the photo, the print itself.’ (Witho Worms). Very fine copy.
