Platinum and palladium printing

Platinum print and its sister technique palladium print are among the oldest, rarest and most permanent photographic techniques. They enable the artist to create pictures of amazing tonality, really unique ones of amazing permanence, limited only by the permanence of the paper they are made on. Small wonder this was the technique of choice of such masters as Edward Steichen or Irwin Penn.
