Lecture - “Photography As Fine Art - The History of the Platinum Print”

on September 14th at 1pm


A solo exhibition of 41 platinum/palladium photographs created from 1978 to 2014.

The photographs represent my investigations of the subjects of the portrait, the nude and the still-life, as well as concepts related to ‘fra secolo e devoto’ (the secular and devout) in art.

Below are all the images in sequence as presented in the exhibition. The variety of ‘color’ in the prints is intentional and characteristic of the platinum/palladium process.
