This collection of 8×10 Platinum photographs represents some of Kim’s most favorite images. He learned how to print in platinum several years ago and continues to find new and older negatives to print.
The process is fun because it doesn’t have to be done in the darkroom. You hand coat your paper and expose the negative in a UV light box. Then it is put into a developing agent and then a clearing bath. After the photograph is washed and dried, it is one of the most archival photographic processes.
Like many alternative processes, a contact negative the size of the print is required. Kim has also made enlarged digital negatives from his Mamiya RB 67 so he could then print them in platinum.
