Wolfagang Ganter

He does better with a series of photographs derived from found, degraded slides—images that he has further distressed, bringing them to a point of acid-trip chemical beauty. They have the look of film burning in a projector, or pictures oxidized into vibrantly unnatural hues. One, titled Stars, 2008, is a fairly intact beach-scape accented with snowflake like bursts of pale blue and purple. Such photographs have graphic appeal, but the closer you look, the more organically beautiful they seem. (here and here)
