Photogravure @ Renaissance Press

Following on a Sally Mann theme, here is a video created by Paul Taylor at Renaissance Press on making a photogravure of one of Mann’s images on Kozo paper. Regular readers of this blog will know that I have created photogravures of the polymer variety in the past and have been pleased with the results.

 Paul shows some interesting dodging and burning techniques that I have not seen before. The Studio has created beautiful photogravures for some excellent photographers including Kenro Izu, Robert Adams and Tom Baril .Ag also featured an article on the them in issue number 43 (Spring 2006)

Also there is an interesting short video below on Robert Adams and his work with the Press
