Description
William Bell (b.1952) - Castor Leaf
Platinotype - Signed - 1997

Beautiful hand printed platinum photograph by William Bell (b. 1952 Georgia, USA). On hand coated Arches Platine 310 paper and signed, titled and dated at bottom. The tonal range on this print is superb.

Platinum is, of all forms of photography, the most luminous, archival and rare. Although difficult, time consuming and costly to create, platinum prints are the sine qua non of photographic art. Over the years, the only obstacle to widespread enjoyment of platinum has been lack of access to this rare process. Once experienced, it is usually a visual revelation! And it is the visual value, the tremendous tonal range, that makes platinum prints so extraordinary. This is one of only a handful of prints made and by the very nature of the process, each platinum print is unique. Retail for this print would be over €400.

Purchased directly from the artist in 2004.

This print will be sent by Express Courier.
