“Phelan has been working for the past 3 years on reviving a forgotten colour photography process invented in the 1890s in Dublin. John Joly, a professor from TCD invented a process that proved full colour could be made from combinations of red, green and blue light. The resulting photograph is comprised of two parts – black and white sheet film and a colour screen made from red, green and blue stripes. This is not a chemical process but instead filters light on exposure and display to create colour. This image is from a series of self-portraits and formed part of an installation at The Lab earlier this year. Phelan will have a series of exhibitions in 2020 which will show many more variations of these photographs at the RHA, Void, Solstice and CCI Paris.
