My Photographic Art:
Photography by definition is -
darkroom photography, which uses film and chemicals to develop film and fiber based
Photography to me is the use of: Form - Light -
I handcraft each one of my prints in my darkroom
to produce the impact and feeling I'm after. The reason I took the photograph! The latent image I put on film and
bring to life with development is matched to a particular printing paper and my own
custom developer I make through my own experiences in the darkroom.
Silver-gelatin prints were developed in the 1870's they remain the standard black
and white print type, Victoria&Albert Museum.
Note: Resin Coated Silver Gelatin Prints can never be archival and will start a
self-destructing process in a matter of years!
