MONOCHROMY PROCESSES

Black-and-white photography is considered by some to be more subtle and interpretive, and less realistic than color photography.

ETERNAL BLACK

Platinum prints are the most durable of all photographic processes.
The platinum group metals are very stable against chemical reactions that might degrade the print—even more stable than gold.
It is estimated that a platinum image, properly made, can last thousands of years.
