My Photographic Art:
Photography by definition is: Darkroom photography, which uses film and chemicals to develop film and fiber based prints.
Silver-gelatin prints: were developed in the 1870's they remain the standard black and white print type. Victoria&Albert Museum.
Photography for me is the use of:
Form - Light - Shadow
Note: Resin Coated Silver Gelatin Prints can never be archival and will start a self-destructing process in a matter of years!
