In part 5.0 of our photo process series we’re looking at the Platinum Process. We’re exploring the invention of the process and talking with our curators and historians, who help us put these processes into historical and cultural contexts.
The Platinum Print process was invented in 1873 by William Willis and Alfred Celements.
Up next, the final process in our series: The Gelatin Silver Print.
