20 unnumbered leaves : illustrations ; 18 cm 
Summary

The images in Return of the Repressed were created using a flatbed scanner. Flowers, leaves and seed-pods were pressed against a photographic negative and then scanned. The images produced by this process look somewhat like a photogram combined with a photograph. The white shapes-the shadows of the flowers and leaves-obscure sections of the image found on the original negative. Often there is a blurring of scale as small objects are juxtaposed next to human figures, buildings and landscapes. -Michael Lindsey Davison.
