Platinum & Palladium Photographs

Making platinum/palladium photographs is a labor of love that requires patience, skill and attention to detail. This alternative photographic process dates to the 19th century and is known for its unique tonal range and longevity.

The process involves coating paper with a solution of platinum and/or palladium salts, exposing the paper under a negative and then developing and washing the print. The result is a beautifully detailed and subtly toned photograph that can last for centuries.

Working with this process requires a deep understanding of chemistry and the photographic process, as well as a willingness to experiment and refine techniques.

Although it is a time-consuming and challenging process, the result is a one-of-a-kind print that is both unique and timeless.
