Collaboration

 

"On my last return visit, Mortensen took out a small sepia-toned print of a young girl to show me how he applied the pencils. He colored the left half and I colored the right — we couldn’t tell which was which — and each signed our half. Mortensen was pleased that I could handle his new color process. It was at this point that I realized we both just happened to have Prismacolor pencils, explaining his choice of the name Prismatics." (p. 77 Me and Mortensen: Photography with the Master, by Robert Balcomb, 2013 Amphora Editions.)
