Happy birthday to us!

April 5th is our birthday... in the past 4 years the site has grown at a rate we never predicted. There was no great plan, it just happened organically. We found great things to ad, you sent in articles and information, more artists joined. I wonder where we'll be in an other four years?

Hope you enjoy the new stuff this month.


2 new european artists!

Karl Burke, our first Irish photographer (I think!) adds his cyanotypes.

Luc Clottemans, Belgium, adds his gum prints.


Making a Bromoil print - Dave Symonds describes the Bromoil process in easy to follow steps. Good reading for both beginners and pros.


Printmaking in the Sun

UK/Europe: Buy 'Printmaking in the Sun' from Amazon.co.uk

USA: Buy 'Printmaking in the Sun' from Amazon.com

A well written, well illustrated excellent book on the Solarplates, or photopolymer process. It's really a printmaking process, but for all experimental photographers it can be extended to photography, with very interesting results. Printmaking in the Sun is great inspiration and makes you want to get your hands dirty and make some prints. Well worth the read!
