Sosi VartanesyanSosi Vartanesyan works exclusively in black and white. All her works are hand printed on fiber based paper and are processed archivally. Sosi also uses photographic emulsion that is applied with a brush to various types of surfaces such as art paper and fabrics, instead of traditional fiber base photo paper. This technique renders a special image close to a lithograph or ink painting which is unique since no two can be exactly the same.
