About the publication
The images in this exhibition catalogue exploit the characteristics of the platinum print to their fullest. Those interested in the technical aspects of photography are certain to be intrigued by the effects achieved through the platinum printing method, "that breath of life"; and those interested in the history of photography will find it a treat to see some rare vintage prints. Included are images by Richard Benson, Jed Devine, Tom Millea, Alan Newman, Irving Penn, Thomas J. Shillea, and George Tice.
