Henry Rattle

Henry Rattle’s long pursuit of fine black-and-white prints, guided by Fred Picker’s books and newsletters, has been overtaken by the greater freedom, frequent surprises, and uniqueness of handcoated processes.
From: South of England, UK.
Shows: Cyanotypes, Gum bichromates, Gum bichromates with cyanotypes.

Henry Rattle loves the process of printing – and sometimes the outcome too. He is now beginning to explore different pigments for gum prints, especially earth pigments. Recently retired from a university lectureship, he now lives in the South of England.

“When a print takes two or three days to complete, it contains something of myself: a part of my life. So alt prints are much more precious to me than any number of mechanically made pictures, however visually attractive.”
