Thomas Barbey practices the rare art of photo manipulation WITHOUT PHOTOSHOP? How is this even possible? Here are the steps to his lost art. 

1. Visualizes concept

2. Takes pictures. His weapons of choice is Mamiya RB 67 and Canon AE-1s

3. Processes and selects negatives

4. Chooses appropriate printing procedure such as combination printing; sandwiching negatives together; thereby printing them simultaneously; pre-planned double exposure in the camera; the re-photographing of collaged photographs; and/or a combination of the above. 

5. Retouches the collages and re-photographs with a special contraption to hold the camera in place. 

6. I then make a master negative to make a limited edition of prints.
