Imogen Cunningham Platinum Estate Prints

The Platinum process is a very rich, warm-toned process of printing that Imogen originally used to print her work in the early 1900s. In addition to being a highly archival printing methed, we find that the platinum process gives a wonderful luminance and tonality to many of Imogen's works. In this process, no two prints are exactly the same -  each image is hand-coated with the emultion laid down on the selected paper, then exposed to ultraviolet light and processed.
