Description

Old Japanese Farmhouse

Taken in Iwaki, Fukushima Japan.  The negative was developed and the print was printed personally by myself in my darkroom on Ilford resin coated B&W paper. Image was shot with a Leica M6 rangefinder camera using  a 35mm Summicron lens on Kodak Tri-X 400 film.

Available in 4 formats:

11 x 14 inch Edition – Ilford B&W archival fiber photo paper

11 x 14 inch Edition – Ilford B&W resin coated photo paper  

8 x 10 inch edition – Ilford B&W archival fiber photo paper

8 x 10 inch edition – Ilford B&W resin coated photo paper

Regarding paper choice:

Resin coated papers exhibit a nice range of tones and make very good prints that will last a very long time. The emulsion is layered in a top plastic coating on the paper. If you are looking for a print for your home or office decoration, this may be all you need and no need to worry about deterioration during your lifetime. The cost of resin coated prints is considerably cheaper than for fiber-based prints.

For art collectors and museums, however, usually only fiber-based prints are ever accepted.  With a fiber-based paper the emulsion is embedded within the grain of the paper. This not only affects archival qualities of the print but also the tonality of the finished print. A fiber-based print typically yields a deeper tone than a resin coated print.  Fiber based paper prints use a heavier paper, the quality of the paper itself is more substantial. Naturally the cost of the paper is higher, as well as the work involved to make a fiber-based print as each print must be washed for an hour in running water bath to remove trace chemistry, and then flattened with a heated press.  That said, a properly processed fiber-base print is archival for hundreds of years.

 

Each print is signed and dated by the photographer.
