Platinum-palladium prints from Los Caprichos:after Goya, an artist's book in the making. It's inspired by an eighteenth-century masterpiece: Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes' famous album of eighty satirical aquatints, published in 1799.

Los Caprichos means literally: whims. The images are photographed from video source and printed in platinum-palladium.

In keeping with Goya's sharp-edged commentary, each of the images is printed with a caption --- in Spanish.

The project (in medias res) is growing: there will be 80 prints in all.
