About the book
Julie Weber worked in a one-hour photo processing lab in the early 2000s when vernacular photography was experiencing a monumental shift from film to digital processes. Fascinated by the lab’s first dye-sublimation printer, Weber kept the scrap material from the photographs she processed. She created the imagery for REMNANTS by layering, folding, cutting and creasing this material byproduct into new configurations that illustrate the CMY color model and obscure the degree of visibility of the original image. The book is a portfolio of 12 unbound sheets: on one side, twelve individual images are presented, and on the other side, the twelve pieces can be arranged to form a single, composite image.
