I have long been mesmerised by the Pictorialist movement. Mainly, I shouldn't wonder because it's out of fashion. Leonard Misonne is one of my favs as is the Scottish fella James Annan. I mean, the images are soft, moody and not usually that sharp. I like that. Oh, and i like the colour - arrived at by the process used - Photograveure, Gum-print, Bromoil and the like. I don't really do any of those although I have dabbled in the first two, so I printed this using conventional techniques. Silver gelatin [Fomatone], sepia and copious use of diffusing filters in the low contract. Eh? It's ok, I don't know what I'm doing either.
