I am a Toronto based artist and have been practicing alternative photographic printing processes for the last 10 years. Gum bichromate, casein, cyanotype, and Van Dyke are the current processes I work with. The definition of “an alternative photographic process” is a diffuse one but generally refers to a process that has been made obsolete by newer innovations such as digital printing. There is flexibility, constraint, and surprise afforded by alternative printing processes. Posted below are a few examples of earlier prints.
Solargraphy: Sun Trail from my backyard one winter day
Solargraphy: 6 months exposure by lake
Cyanotype: Lake at Algonquin Park
Ferric-Gum Print: The only Ferric-Gum tri-colour print known to exist
(From a process developed by Michael Andrews)
Casein Print: New Mexico Train
