Fine Art: Yucatan Passages Portfolio: Platinum/Palladium Prints

This process was invented in the late 1800’s. It involves using Platinum and Palladium metals combined with a sensitizing agent coated on archival watercolor paper and contact printed with the photographic negative to arrive at a positive print. This beautiful, full tonal process was a favorite of the early pioneers of photography including Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz and Frederick Evans. When used with the appropriate subject matter it results in an ethereal, full tonal image that conveys the emotion of the original subject better than any other printing method.
