"The most interesting space in photography today is where the artist can combine digital techniques with hand-worked processes to produce one-of-a-kind works." ~ Patty Mulligan
Patty Mulligan has been creating photographs using alternative processes for almost 20 years. She used Polaroid film in most of her work, however when Polaroid stopped making this film, she began combining new digital techniques with old, historic processes.
In the age of digital photography, mass production of images is easy and yet perhaps unsatisfying to both artist and viewer, each looking for something novel and special in art: really the reason that art is created. She creates one-of-a-kind works using old and innovative processes including orotones and polaroids on gold. .
