I been looking at some tree photography lately (I was inspired after starting a Halloween prop last week…yes…in July). Beth Moon has some spectacular tree images.
I couldn’t put my finger on what was so unique, aside from the striking beauty, until I read about the process:
All photographs are platinum/palladium prints. These metals are hand coated on 100% rag cotton water color paper. Since platinum, like gold, is so stable and permanent, the platinum print is the most archival of any image on paper. A platinum print can last for centuries.
As we know, I have infinite respect for artists who use tangible materials in the digital age. So much soul…
