Historical & Alternative Processes

In an age of digital perfection and digital reproduction there are many artists who look backwards and sideways to create something new and different. Many look to historical and alternative photographic processes as an antidote to digital perfection, exchanging computer for darkroom, perfection for the unpredictable, machine made for hand made.

To many, alternative processes are alchemy. Weighing and mixing raw chemicals, coating papers, exposing papers to sunlight, washing, fixing and toning the final image to create a one off, an unique and irreproducible image. The antithesis of digital photography.
