Artists and collectors equally value platinum prints because of their beauty, permanence, and rarity. Platinum is one of the most stable metals known to science. A well made platinum print will last as long as the paper it is made on. The handmade lightly textured paper which complements platinum’s graceful silver-grey tones, brings out the almost three dimensional look that is the trademark of a platinum print.
Today there are only a handful of dedicated platinum printers in the world. The difficulty of the process plus the high cost of materials mean it is highly unlikely that there will ever be large numbers of platinum prints on the market. And because platinum prints are made entirely by hand, each one is unique.
