I’m sorry but I have to admit to neglecting this blog. I get so involved with projects that I forget to post about them. So it’s time to catch up.
Here are a couple of Fine Art Platinum/Palladium printing projects we were involved with. “Moonshine K” was commissioned by The Baltic Gallery in Gateshead for Turner Prize winner Elizabeth Price.
This Platinum/Palladium print was commissioned by American artist George Holroyd who is based in Budapest.
I have also been very busy perfecting my Salt Printing technique. It’s the oldest method of making a photographic print, Invented by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839 and quite tricky to get right. Here are a few examples. The colour and tonality can be varied by adjusting the chemicals of the coating. Also the toning, which is essential to protect the Silver from oxidisation has an effect on the colour. I use Gold or Platinum to tone my Salt Prints.
