This is a Platinum and Palladium Print created on Bergger Cot 320 paper. Platinum prints are known for their great tonal ranges and archival permanence. This process also yields a completely matte appearance since the metals are absorbed into the paper. When created they can have the opportunity to last for over a thousand years, provided the paper keeping the image stays together. Platinum printing was invented back in 1873 and the prints created from that time period still look as when they were first made. Each print is a completely unique object that can never be reproduced exactly, due to the myriad of variables from chemistry, humidity and hand coating of the paper. Collectors are attracted to Platinum Prints because of their great range of tonality, its surface quality and long term permanence.
