Darkroom prints

2013-2015

Silver-gelatin prints made in the darkroom from 35mm and medium format negatives. Mostly 30×40 cm on baryta papers, a majority of these are made with the “Lith” technique. Lith is an outdated process where the contrast is graded only with chemical concentration and exposure time. Very hard to control, a print can go from white to totally black in a few seconds. Depending on the paper and how it is used, it can give very strong contrasts, naturally colorful sepias, texture, pepper, marks. The chemistery makes it impossible to reproduce twice the same tones/contrast; making each print completely unique.
