New Palladium Show Coming Up
I'm choosing about a dozen of my favorite black-and-white images to be printed for a new show later this year or early next year. Each image will have a black "palladium" border like the one shown here.
I'm especially interested that viewers should appreciate that the images are palladium and not regular photographs. If they are mounted without borders, a casual gallery goer might miss the special characteristics of the palladium print: the tonal range, the range of soft blacks, etc. Each will be signed on the Arche's Platine paper which has been in continuous production since it was used in the Renaissance by artists like Leonardo.
