Description

Practicing the kintsugi technique on photography is very complex because the main material used for this type of restoration, urushi lacquer, needs to be placed in a cabinet called MURO in a constant hot and humid condition to polymerize, while the papers on which the photograph is printed (baryta and poly-coated) fear the humidity. For this reason it took three years of research to arrive ate the first acceptable results.
