Wyoming – Fine Art Prints

I’ve recently become interested in two somewhat-related things: first, producing hand-made prints from my images, and secondly, creating distinct and coherent bodies of work.

The first of these, then, are a series of prints from my 2010 summer in Wyoming.

These were all printed in a wet lab using the ziatype process. Ziatypes involve mixing components in a shot glass, pouring the liquid on a piece of fine French watercolor paper, and brushing the emulsion into place with a paintbrush.

In my case I use primarily lithium palladium, ammonium dichromate, and some iron compounds for my emulsion. Different compounds affect the color and contrast of the resulting print. For these prints I used Arches’s Platine paper in a 140lb weight.
