Taking photos into the printmaking process

A few years ago I was able to spend sometime working in printmaking. I developed some portraits using the etching process on zinc plate. This 35 mm photo originates from my father who took the picture at a wedding my parents were attending some years ago and I thought it was a great portrait of my mother (who later bravely fought the onset of multiple sclerosis), showing  her in conversation while wearing one of her trademark hats. I put this up today as sadly it marks the first year of her death . RIP Mum.
