Kyotocat Afternoon

Albumen Prints by David Aimone

Gone is the beautiful lightbox of a studio, but there were many incredibly lit figure sessions in the space. One particular afternoon is memorable with one of my favorite models, Kyotocat. I shot a LOT of large format film, mostly 4×5 and 5×7, and have recently started printing them as small contact prints.

The prints in this portfolio are all 4×5” contact prints in Albumen, which is a silver and salt light-sensitive process on a base of egg-white and salt coated watercolor paper.

These are small, and you may be viewing them on a computer screen larger than the original prints. In your hand, these prints have both a depth and simultaneously the image floats upon the albumen.
Available individually or as a few variations of a series.
