Spanish term or phrase: papeles velados
A text about a contemporary Argentine artist who experiments with now obsolete analog photography materials:

En esta serie, un revelador vencido el que dibuja formas en papeles velados, a medias sumergidos en una cubeta, pero el azar sueña aquí con el paisaje, y de la rara alquimia de los despojos resultan horizontes claros, atardeceres pampeanos, ríos barrosos, mares o sierras lejanas, en la misma gama de ocres, marrones y sepias.
