After being exposed to  such intense light for so long, if you run it through the developer, the image would just go completely black. The image has already formed through exposure, and a chemical reaction is not needed to develop an image.

why wouldn't the photographer simply DEVELOP the paper negative "normally" then just scan the dried print?

The scan doesn't affect the "negative" because the light from the scan is just week enough and the pass is just short enough that the print is unaffected.

Thanks for the weblog link.  Okay, stupid question but I must ask:


Everything makes sense except the scanning… The paper neg is thus exposed to bright light as it’s being scanned.  What if anything does this do to the neg??
