The gelatin silver process is commonly

known as a black and white photographic

print. It is the traditional way of making

a photograph in the darkroom by printing

an image onto paper from a film negative.

A suspension of silver salts in gelatin is

coated onto a support of film and paper,

making it sensitive to light. In a darkroom

the film image is enlarged onto the paper

and is then processed in a series of

development and fixing baths to

make them archival.

This photographic technique was invented

in the late 1800s and continues today with

artists that appreciate the timeless quality

that these handcrafted images produce.

  • They are imbeciles who call my work abstract. That which they call abstract is the most realistic,
    because what is real is not the exterior but the idea, the essence of things. Constantin Brancusi
  • Come to the edge, he said. They said: We are afraid. Come to the edge, he said.
    They came. He pushed them and they flew. Guillaume Apollinaire
  • I had hardly begun to read / I asked how can you ever be sure / that what you write is really / any good at all and he said you can't / you can't you can never be sure / you die without knowing / whether anything you wrote was any good / if you have to be sure don't write W.S. Merwin
  • Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask 'how', while others of a more curious nature will ask 'why'.
    Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information. Man Ray
