Photogravure/Photo Polymer Gravure
I thought I would share a few snaps from a small New England gathering earlier today. Whitey demonstrated the photogravure process he's learned recently,and it was a real treat to see him walk through the process.
There are a lot of steps to, and I think when you see the results, in all their three dimensional glory, you'll see it's worth the effort.
He started with a negative he made in Europe (I forget where he said), then he made a positive on ortho film in the darkroom to about 8x10. Contact printed onto a light sensitive plate, inked it up as one would in etching, and put it through a press.
Very fun to see!! Hopefully, he'll chime in if you have any questions about the process.
A big thanks to Whitey!!
