    I don't really think anyone is saying that Plat/Pallad isn't the correct way to convey his message, but the digital element introduces a different look/more options than a "process driven" piece that is analog all the way.

    Re: Video about Nobuyuki Kobayashi

    We had a good chat. He's a very down to earth guy. His main film is TriX and he is concerned about its future availability. He uses pine resen to smooth out the paper's surface, and prevent chemicals from going right through. He feels it helps make the image more stable. He got the idea from traditional Japanese painters. The inks won't pass through the paper.
    He has been working on a Portrait Project about the survivors of the 2011 Tsunami. All digital, mind you. Here is a video by NHK:



    I'm planning on meeting him in summer 2017. Hopefully I'll get to see him at work in his studio, go out shooting, and trade prints.

    Hi Andrew,

    Old thread but was watching (re-watching) the video. Did you ever catch up with Kobayashi in 2017 for a studio visit?

    Nice videos.
    Makes me want to go back to Japan. I was there in the late 90's - I had just started with LF. Money was tight - I shot sparingly. I could really do some financial damage there now...
