ABOUT NEW CHRYSOTYPE PRINTING

Leanne McPhee ‘Drape’

The New Chrysotype process has tonal and surface qualities and permanence like Platinotype-Palladiotype, but the added feature of beautifully muted colours, controlled by the chemistry and physics of the process. The photographic artist should find here a whole new palette of non-literal colour to explore in printing archival ‘monochrome’ images.

THE NEW CHRYSOTYPE HISTORY
Herschel’s original gold-printing process of 1842, which he dubbed Chrysotype, encountered difficulties which prevented its adoption into the photographic repertoire.This ‘forgotten’ process was revived by Mike Ware in a novel version in 1987 by means of some sophisticated modern chemistry, which made it both economic and controllable.  More information: http://www.mikeware.co.uk/mikeware/New_Chrysotype_Process.html  http://www.mikeware.co.uk
