Signed + numbered with certificate of authenticity ( signature and title are hidden here on the photos to avoid counterfeiting ) Silver gives this photograph the distinctive feature of changing tone according to the ambient light. Photography created by hand using only precious metals: silver, platinum and palladium, like a precious jewellery. This means that each print is unique even if in an edition of 8 This print is produced using a 19th. century process called Platinum Palladium Printing. This image was captured on film in 1984. The negative was scanned to create a digital negative specific to this technique. The photograph is produced by coating a light sensitive Platinum and Palladium solution on to translucent vellum paper on which the photograph appears which is then bonded with silver on the back of the print. A labor intensive and expensive process which results in a beautiful finish and longevity into the hundreds of years. Print created later. Provenance : Ian Sanderson’s Estate Please note.

Platinum Palladium Silver print available sizes ( each in edition of 8 plus 2 AP ) : - size 1 : Image size : 13,5 x 18,5 cm / 5,11 x 7,08" Sheet : 18,5 x 22 cm / 7,08 x 8,66" - size 2 : Image size : 35,5 x 26 cm / 14 x 10,23" Sheet : 40 x 30 cm / 15,74 x 11,81" Ian Sanderson (born 1951 Scotland, died 2020 Spain) was a Scottish photographer. Ian produced images over a 35 year career. For most he worked as both a Commercial and Fine Art photographer; during his last years concentrated on his personal archive. Ian and his widow Nathalie have worked for many years with alternative printing techniques in their workshop, ISP, creating Platinum Palladium, Silver Gelatin, Lith or Gum Bichromate. This culminated in a large retrospective exhibition in Barcelona which was sponsored by the Nando and Elsa Peretti Foundation. Platinum Palladium printing is a traditional photographic technique which precedes silver gelatin technique. Many photographers have worked with it in the past as Irvin Penn, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sebastiao Salgado o Ormond Gigli with its Platinum with gold leaf print 'Girls in the Windows'. ISP Workshop continues with the work of Ian's widow to create archival pigment prints like this one but also rare and personalized photographs. The original Platinum Palladium technique she uses is more advanced by adding another precious metal (silver or gold leaf depending on the desired rendering) that only a handful of artists in the world have the expertise to practice it today. Silver or Gold bring longevity and rarity to the print but also a tonal range and depth unmatched by digital printers which are valued by collectors. This print is fragile if it remains loose so it's bonded to an acid free watercolour board to eliminate this problem. Packaged with care and delivered flat. categories : Black and white photography, 20th. century, Timeless, Grainy, Photographic film, Analogue, Analog, Handmade photographic print, Vintage, Precious metals, Harley Bike
