New Images, Old Plants

About print quality and artistic sustainability. I use pigment on paper. Harman Gloss FB AI and Epson UltraChrome K3 pigment ink. The process is archival with no image degradation for a minimum of 76 years and possibly exceeding 200, depending on environmental conditions. Click here for the research on this. The paper and ink will remain as image fast as traditional silver gelatin or better. The advances in printing now allow an artist to produce fine photographic prints without the use of darkroom “wet” chemical processes, greatly reducing the impact of fluid waste. This fits more squarely with low impact work.
