Interesting videos on Kenro Izu’s Platinum work
Having been a fan of Kenro Izu’s work for a long time its great to finally find some videos about his work and the way he processes his prints. I stumbled across these videos whilst looking for information on printing Cyanotype over platinum which he has done in the past and are stunning, a process i would like to try in the next couple of weeks. The above image shows an example of one such print of Izu's.
There are two videos at : http://www.pem.org/izu/theartist.html
Direct links are :
One brief one on his work : http://www.pem.org/izu/high.html
And one on the way he processes his prints. : http://www.pem.org/izu/process.html (love the way he dumps his developer on the print )
Although these small videos they are a nice insight into this master photographer and printers work.
(You need QuickTime or Realplayer installed to watch.)
There is a longer text file of the interview at : http://www.pem.org/izu/interview_text.html
