Yes, Roger has it correct bellow. For his "What the Water Said" series, David submerged raw stock in the water and did not process it. Any colors that appear were developed due to the pH level of the water at that moment (and the sometimes very long sumbersion times).

But submerging it exposed it, right? Then it was processed to produce 
the colour that's apparent in some of the films, presumably?
