Photogravure: photo to paper processes



In reading Walter Benjamin’s “Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction” I decided to raise the topic of photogravures. Here is the link to an incredible article and resource by The Getty Foundation:

PHOTOGRAVURE The Atlas of Analytical Signatures of Photographic Processes The Getty Conservation Institute, © 2013 J. Paul Getty Trust



this is a piece I did with Mauricio Cortes. It it not a rotogravure but a copper plate photogravure (b/w print) made from 35mm color photograph. We also designed the angle-iron frames.
