Man Fishing Near Factories In Onahama Japan

Handcrafted Original Print
Open edition silver gelatin print of man fishing near factories in the port town of Onahama in Iwaki City, Fukushima Japan. This print has a wide range of tones and detail. Image taken at golden hour with a Bronica ETRSi 645 medium format camera using a 75mm lens and Kodak Tri-X 400 film.
This is not a digital print – both the negative and the print were developed by myself in my darkroom.
Outside of the actual photography, the process of making a print of this quality is somewhat complex and requires skill, knowledge, and time. Some of the steps to produce a silver gelatin print include:
  • Enlarge the image from film on an enlarger and expose for the appropriate contrast grade, for the appropriate amount of time.
  • Develop, fix, and wash the print for 45 minutes in continuously flowing water to remove all traces of remaining chemistry.
  • Dry the print for several days, where it will then curl.  
  • Press the print flat in a special hot mount press.
The result will be, when made skillfully, a silver gelatin print will last hundreds of years.
