Clues might be the pigment photo print process and the high quality rag paper that he uses. Looking up the use of pigments, it says that the finish is somewhat water resistant and the pigment particles seem to bond well with the applied surface. With that, maybe he carefully soaked the prints to apply in a papier mache fashion over the aluminum forms. You would probably need to see up close in person to analyze what the real technique was. I don't know how he did that crystal growth effect.
