Combination Printing:   Photographic Printing Process
The negatives are placed in  separate photographic enlargers. The print is made by moving the paper between each enlarger and exposing each negative onto photographic paper.
Hag uses nine enlargers fitted with tungsten, condenser and cold cathode heads. Three are large format, four medium format and two 35mm. Image registration is achieved on a moveable specially made baseboard. Masking is possible at all points of the light path of the enlarger using line film (Agfa Rapidoline Ortho RA710p and Kodak Gravure Positive), photographic resin coated prints, opaque (painted onto glass), masking tape (black and white), lithographic tape, paper cut outs, matt box’s and dodging and burning.
