I used actual objects on a photocopier inside of plastic bags for a lot of them. Some are image transfer with acrylic medium. Some are on transparency film. The photocopier becomes my black and white camera for close up shots of intimate objects. I do not make copies of the copies, so it is basically a direct photo process. The images are original. There are no negatives. It is immediate gratification without any photo processing or harsh chemicals. Toner cartridges can be refilled, so it really cuts down on the impact on the environment.
