Okay, so in my last post I talked about the process, but let’s look a bit more up close and see how it comes together. First, the colour separations: And, the process: And there we go. There’s some clear fogging and plate damage in areas of this image, and the colour balance isn’t quite right, [...]
Earlier on I posted a few examples of the work I did in the final semester of my bachelors, Colour Photogravure from three plates. Well, these posts really asked more questions that they answered, and given that I may not get to revisit the process for a while I thought I’d post what I can. [...]
“Ground”, 2010 (Click to enlarge) Taken in early 2010, printed as a Polymer Photogravure in late 2010, a 1:1 reproduction of a small portion of the the ground out the front of the block of units where I used to live.
