    An Anthology Of Silver Prints

    I have posted some of the images below here in the past. I finally sat down and consolidated a bunch of them i had laying around, old- and new, into a single album.

    This is a more complete look at some of my work now beginning in 1995. I will likely add older- and new images as the spirit moves.

    These are shot in a variety of film formats but all are scans of silver prints made from traditional negatives. Only minimal digital post processing was done to try and - as best as possible - match the actual print.

    Questions, commentary, and critique are welcome:

    Nice prints. Are there common features like type of film, paper, etc?

    No, not really. The negatives are from Tri-X, Agfapan APX 100, TMX, FP4+, HP5+, and Efke 100PL. Formats include 35mm, 645, 6x6, 6x9, and 4x5.

    Developers are HC-110B, PMK Pyro, D-76, D-23, and Pyrocat-HD, the latter being almost exclusively used in high-dilution, low agitation, long duration development (Semistand or Exterme Minimal Agitation). The last 1/3 or 1/2 of images were developed in some version of that with either D-23 1:1 or Pyrocat.


    The images are VC split printed using a Zone VI VC cold light head on an old Omega D-2. The earlier ones are printed on either Arista.EDU VC Glossy or Oriental VC. The later ones are printed on Fomabrom VC Variant 111 (which to my mind is one of the finest VC papers ever made).

    All of them are developed in Dektol 1:1, stopped with dilute glacial acetic acid, and rapid fixed in Ilford Hypam. After washing and clearing in PermaWash they were toned in Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner in dilutions varying from 1:20 to 1:40, and then go through a 60 min final wash.

    Maybe it's my browser, but all I see are tiny images, including the thumbnails on the right. Hard to judge anything from that, and I am not going to download to view.

    It's definitely your browser. Likely it's not dealing with javascript properly.

    Hmmmmm, what browser and what OS? I have looked at this on a variety of display surfaces and it always worked well.

    Is it possible your browser is zooming down? Do you have another browser with which to try this?

    So far I have confirmed proper operation on IOS/Safari on iPad, Linux/Chrome, Linux/Firefox, and Android/Chrome. I have anecdotal evidence that it also works on iPhones.

    For me it does not work in Safari/MacOS Catalina. It does work in Chrome/Catalina.

    I just tried it with Safari on Catalina 10.15.7. Worked perfectly out of the box. This suggests some settings madness with your instance of Safari, particularly since Chrome works. This is why everyone uses Chrome or Firefox

    To test this theory, you could create a "clean" new test account on your Mac and see if Safari works properly when logged in as that user.
