Hughes' photographic work is centered on the crafting of unique hand-made C-Type prints, made in the darkroom and using traditional and experimental printing processes to produce individual singular artifacts. This project, says Hughes, "is focused on the photograph itself as an art object, its time-based properties, and its effect upon the subject. Most importantly, This-Has-Them visualises the embalming nature of photography."
