Each toned silver gelatin photograph is printed individually and archived in small limited editions. Each final image is as much a result of the extensive time Kevin Saunders spends in the darkroom, as of the negative he has taken. In the darkroom, exposing his selected photographic fiber paper to the negative photographic image, he uses various techniques to control the time and degree of light, so as to enhance the natural drama of the scene and the depth of tonal range.
While his interest in early techniques have involved Kevin in photographic processes, such as platinum palladium prints, he is also keeping pace with the digital age, scanning negatives prior to producing archival quality prints. With manipulation of his original photographs, Kevin produces images similar to Image Transfers, Infra Red and Platinum Palladium prints, or more familiar Black & White and Color images.
The use of archival Epson inks on watercolor papers, for example, give his color work a muted but vibrant appeal. This is an ever expanding medium.
