About

Limited Edition 8/25 Printed 2005 Drawn to the tonal range and delicate strength of platinum/palladium images, Kerik Kouklis has specialized in this medium since 1995. He has since perfected and added to his technique, and has evolved his entire craft into an exploration of the capabilities of this medium. Kerik grew up with photography, helping to build a darkroom in his parent’s basement in his early teens. He moved into large format cameras and sheet film in the late 1980’s, and began working with platinum/palladium in 1990. Platinum printing is a contact printing process; limiting the print size to that of the negative. For larger prints, this means either using a large format original negative or making enlarged duplicate negatives. Kerik now works primary with the 7”x17”, 14”x17” and 12”x20” formats. The platinum/palladium medium has a much different look than gelatin silver. The prints tend to be somewhat softer in appearance and are effused with delicate midtones and a gentle glow. During the past few years, Kouklis has been using a ‘gum-over’ process that adds hue and depth to his prints. This process involves printing one or more layers of gum bichromate over the platinum image. With a subject matter that tends toward the ethereal, utilizing fog and gentle light situations, the addition of tint accentuates the moodiness of an image. His work has been noted and collected in several countries on three continents. Kerik had taught platinum printing classes since 1997, and his work is in private and public collections in many countries. Kerik lives in the Sierra foothills with his wife and two daughters.
