    Comp. Simulations and Making the Same with Chemistry

    I learned that Ralph Gibson was using Grade 5 and 6 Brovira at his prints. That paper lost. I quickly thinked may be there was a computer simulation for that paper and this question carried me to the next question.

    Is it possible to do what computer do with chemistry ? May be I can buy an Ilford paper , mix the simulating developer and woala I got Brovira ! Or may be color filters or whatever I dont know ?

    I suspect that Gibson was doing what many photographers were doing at the time. This was to use pre-flashing to reduce the paper contrast. I think this was covered in Looten's book. This enabled the printer to stock only one grade of paper rather than several. It didn't mean that he was printing everything at grade 5 level.
