the prints look nothing like inkjets.. they still have that 'below the surface' depth that platinum prints do. most of my images have very subtle color/saturation, as to not overpower that depth and tone of the platinum
here's another from the Salton Sea series
From the Metamorphosis series
from Cement Works
Jim - these are wonderful! and I , for one, loves the suttelty in your colours...
(My twin once made some oilprints over inkjet. Looks nice, but they are very "messy" compared to this...)
I don't know how many alternative printing techniques we now have represented, but it is good to see so amazing results, done "by hand", so to speak.
I have one, I havn't seen too many of elsewhere...
don't even know, whether it applyes to alternative printing.. but it is alternative..
one of the most easy - fastest - and most poisonous techniques I know of....
first a normal print is made - then a colour copy on a copying maschine.
this copy is laid on a piece of thick copper printing paper, and then soaked with acetone....
another piece of paper is put on top, and the whole thing pulled through a etching press, under high pressure...
voila - the image has been transferred to the copper printing paper..
this is later slightly hand coloured.
the acetone is the tricky part. you can make beautiful prints in two minutes, but each print will take ten years of your sane life......;-)
the print "another from the Salton Sea Series" (#252)
is absolutely wonderful.
Color is so subtle, together with a very good composition makes
it a master print IMO.
