Platinum-Palladium & Inkjet Prints

These platinum-palladium prints are from a series of photographs taken from an upcoming book “Duality”.

Developed in the 19th century, platinum-palladium printing is regarded as one of the most distinctive and challenging photographic processes. Paper is hand-coated with a platinum solution and exposed to ultraviolet light in the carefully controlled environment of the darkroom. Even the smallest alterations by the printer result in uniquely individual prints.

Chemically inert and characterised by a distinctive tonal range, platinum-palladium prints are prized for their longevity and aesthetic qualities.

The images in “Sentience” uncovers the feelings art can induce - even in an inanimate object - and questions what is or isn’t a sentient being.

Juliet makes the scarf a fluid extension of her body through movement, breathing life into a square piece of fabric. Joel used black and white film for this series. Prints are available in A4 and A3 sizes on matt photo paper. For custom sizes please contact us.

The photo series “Duality” documents scarves from our creative partnership with the Man Ray Trust. The dramatic shadow of the dancer, Juliet, forms a separate entity, referencing Man Ray’s surrealist works.
