Melanie and Michelle Craven's Twin Cactus

Melanie and Michelle Craven's Twin Cactus
Melanie and Michelle Craven

Artists: Melanie and Michelle Craven
Medium: Photographed with a 4x5 camera and the final print was a collotype print. (Collotype is a photomechanical / lithographic-like process invented by Alphonse Louis Poitevin (1855) in which a pane of ground glass is coated with a bichromated gelatin.)

This image was taken on our way to Globe, Arizona. We were out photographing looking for images that would compliment our series titled "Identical Otherness." This body of work is about our twinship. This cactus immediately caught our attention in the land of cacti. The two joining cactus were the same but, yet different. We are identical twins living in Phoenix and we own and operate Tilt Gallery.


The countdown to Best of Phoenix continues! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix.  No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more.
