Platinum PrintingPlatinum printing was invented in 1873 by William Willis. The process produces photographs of unrivaled beauty and permanence.
An image is created by coating a light sensitive solution containing platinum onto archival paper, then exposing a negative in direct contact with the paper under strong UV light. A simple developer, clearing stage and wash complete the processing.
Platinum printing is delicate and subtle. The tone of the print can range from neutral/cool through to warm/selenium.
Platinum printing is a contact method & will therefore need a negative as big as the desired final print. This can be achieved through digitally created internegatives. Email to enquire.
