“Archetype” is a collection of abstract photographs.
The photos were taken with a late 1980s “Yashica” camera model and with an ILFORD film. At first the photos were developed on paper and then scanned at 600 dpi and digitally reworked with spot colors (2 or 3 tones).
The representation is an impression of a net of a fence, which graphically becomes similar to a sign on stone as in the ancient caves where humans represented the animals that lived around them.
The archetype in this case is in the representation itself which, being a tangle of lines, gives shape to an abstract and primitive image.
