Alt Process - Bromoil
14 images Created 10 Apr 2016
The art of Bromoil is a labor intensive process which began in the late 1890’s. It was most popular in the 1920s when it was used by the Pictorial photography movement. It is a unique alternative process art form and is currently practiced by a small number of artists worldwide. A Bromoil image begins with a black and white photograph. The photograph is printed on a specialty paper and the silver is removed through a bleaching and tanning chemical process. Permanent lithograph ink is then stippled onto the bleached image with a variety of brushes. The result is an image with pigment rich textures and is a one of a kind piece of artwork.
