Fahrenheit 451, Digital Test

The title of Ray Bradbury's novel 'Fahrenheit 451' (1954) comes from the fact that paper burns at a temperature of 451 fahrenheit. In his story books are banned by the state and 'firemen' are employed to seek out and burn all remaining books. Its a fantastic story and is the starting point for a new series of photos about fire.

Below are images of some old test prints stuck onto a rough concrete wall and set on fire. What I find fascinating is the combination of the wall surface, the image on the photo, the bubbling of the resin coated paper and the pattern of the flames. These shots were made with a digital camera but I am now making similar shots on film so I can make some prints (on the same resin coated paper).
