    Silver Gelatine Print? The same as Fiber base print?

    OK guys,

    I emailed the gallery that handles the prints from famed street photographer Vivian Maier..? So for a 12x12 printed on 16x20 sized paper runs between 3,000 - 7,000 dollars for SILVER GELATINE print. So.. is a Silver gelatine print something different than what most of us here print on?

    I saw some Vivian Maier prints in Cleveland today. They are worth it. But if you go to Cleveland, the prints are currently going for only $2200. Those prints are magnificent.

    By the way, resin coated prints are also silver gelatin prints. But there is a difference between fiber and RC prints.

    Well, I am guilty of that when I hang in the gallery. It's useful to separate it from the digital photos, or the digital prints from scans, even if they are black and white. If I just said film, people think I scan and print digitally. And "hand made traditional darkroom print" just takes up too much space. And galleries like pretentious words.
