The images in the Carbon Gallery are offered for sale as hand-crafted carbon transfer prints, a traditional process that dates from the mid 1860s. The process is highly labor intensive and technologically challenging, but with a special appeal to true lovers of traditional printmaking. Carbon tranfer has unique surface and textural qualities, including surface relief, that gives the image a kind of multi-dimensional quality, making it one of the most distinctive of all photograhic processes. Carbon transfer is also the most stable of all photographic processes, its permanence being limited only by the final support on which the relief image is transferred. Depending on the requirements of the specific image carbon transfer prints are made on a variety of final supports, including baryta and 100% cotton rag, and other specially prepared fine art papers.
