Crossing, Use Caution 交差点注意

This image started with a photo I took at night in Northern Japan. I loved the composition, so I experimented with altering the lighting curves and making the photo black and white. I knew that my printer was running really low on toner and created these orange lines that reminded me of film processing, so I divided the piece into a triptych and printed it. Once everything was where I wanted it, I drew contours around the varying exposures that existed in the piece, until the work felt balanced and complete.
