Summer, 2003: New Book Released (click here)
The images created from these beautiful “landscapes of his mind” were special enough, but to them he added the process which he invented and named “Mordançage.” When put through the mordançage solution, the silver gelatin in the densest areas of the print could be removed with the pressure of a jet of water or cotton ball. Nearly three dimensional in shape, these photographs are exquisite to behold.
An association has been formed by Madame Sudre and “Les amis de Jean-Pierre Sudre” to promote this work so that others may know the joy of experiencing his images in a book and exhibitions. Jean Pierre died in 1997, but his legacy as a teacher, poet, visionary, artist and philosopher shall remain in the hearts of those that knew him and in his many beautiful works of art. I will be forever grateful to Jean-Pierre for his many gifts and allowing me to be a student of this process.
