    That book has been very well-received last year by critics and audience, but of course the aesthetics of the prints it's just a part of its merit, the rest being the coherence and sense of intimacy arising image after image, in my opinion.
    I was just curious about the technique behind and wanted to hear the opinion of someone with more darkroom experience than myself...I've just started, so I'm not looking to try unusual stuff right now, I'm still learning the basics.
    Are you sure those are even silver prints? I didn't see any mention on the site. Most of the latest digital printing processes have longer scales than a silver print. (Sorry if that offends anyone...)

    Quite often I find that the repro process adds just a bit more pop and contrast than is inherent in the original, especially when viewing on a monitor vs a print.

    I'd also say that the project is very typical of the now-popular cerebral, autobiographical style of photography, which upon viewing is something like meeting a man who isn't very interesting or accomplished and having him tell you his life story.
