Image and Text Assignment for NMIT

Have been working on a Photomedia assignment where we have to combine images and text.
I took some digital photos of Abbotsford Convent  that I shot earlier in the year, converted them to black and white images, inverted them and printed them onto acetate, Then took them into the darkroom and printed them with the text of the Magdelane Laundries by Joni Mitchell.
I then coffee toned the images,
Now I have scanned them so I can put them on this blog.
I guess I could have done it all in Photoshop - but the journey was interesting.
My goal was to evoke the misery and suffering that occured at this convent.
