Enveloped - Polymer photogravure print - Edition 2021

Numbered edition or A/P prints

Collaborating with another person to make my work requires trust and genuine interest by both parties in the art we are making.  I have been lucky over the years to have opportunities where these collaborations flourished. I think those important qualities are part of this photograph.

This hand-pulled polymer photogravure print is made with Charbonnel Noir RSR black and Gamblin bone black, on Rives BFK paper.  I decided on a chine collé with Awagami Kitakata.  and an edition of 10 numbered prints and 1 A/P prints.   

  • Hand made by Ray Bidegain
  • Limited edition of 10
  • chine collé
  • 6.5 x 8 on an 11x15 sheet.
  • Signed numbered and dated by the artist on the lower front. 

Photogravure print made in 2021 from an 8x10 negative made in 2007 by Ray Bidegain. Model is Catriona

All Cascabel prints are hand-pulled by Ray Bidegain and are signed and numbered on the lower front. Image and paper sizes are approximate, Variations within the edition are possible and expected.

Beautiful Work!

I've been a collector of Ray's work for many years now, mostly his Platinum/Palladium prints. This new body of work is remarkable in its unique look and feel. I love the texture and the emotional feel these images evoke. Thanks for another wonderful print, Ray!

About Ray Bidegain

One Photographers Journey

For the last 22 years I have been lucky enough to spend my time working as a fine art photographer, and specifically working as a photographer who photographed using large format negatives and made platinum prints from the camera negatives.

The platinum period

Many of you have collected these platinum prints over the years and some of you have learned platinum printing from me along the way. I love the process and I have loved every minute of this period in my work. Platinum printing is an amazing and beautiful way to make photographs.

The Gravures

For the last five years I have started working on making photogravure prints, polymer plate photogravure prints, to be specific. I worked on it, decided I wanted to make a change and make a commitment to working as a printmaker making photogravure prints. You all know me as a person who likes handmade photography. Handmade objects are at the heart of my photographic journey and printmaking is all of that, and more.
