New to Me

I don’t think I’ve seen either of these types of prints in person but would love to. I came across the terms in Contact Sheet, the Light Work Annual 2009 No. 152.

Piezography is a brand of monochromatic inks and software that produce what is unarguably the absolute highest-standard in black and white printing.

Atelier Fresson prints are carbon prints. “A carbon print is a photographic print produced by soaking a carbon tissue in a dilute sensitizing solution of potassium dichromate. The solution also consists of carbon, gelatin, and a coloring agent. The process was created as a result of print fading in early photographic processes, and was patented in 1864 by Joseph Wilson Swan” (wikipedia.org).
