Traditional BW Gelatin Silver Prints:
This image is also available as a traditional BW gelatin-silver photograph hand-printed directly from the glass plate negative in my darkroom. Because of the time and cost of materials used in hand-printing a gelatin-silver photograph they are more expensive to produce than digital versions, starting at $20 for 4" x 5" size. The negative can be enlarged up to 16" x 20". Please inquire for pricing.
I have been printing traditional BW gelatin-silver photographs for 30 years--nearly all of it BW fine art photography--so a great deal of experience goes into each hand-made photograph. This kind of printing is an exercise in patience, craft and expertise--and it is fast a becoming a 'lost art'.On Oct-30-20 at 08:32:27 PDT, seller added the following information:
