Zoom Flight - Polymer photogravure print - Edition 2021

Flight - Polymer photogravure print - Edition 2021

Numbered edition or A/P prints

 This photograph " Flight " is from the first photography session I had with the wonderful model/actress Devon. A friend had arranged for us to work in a historic ballroom here in Portland,  The space and light were fantastic and the session was productive. 

  I have on many occasions wanted to make photographs that include the element of movement and I have many negatives to show for my attempts. Most times the model is, sadly, mostly or completely invisible. This time the camera recorded what I had imagined, I was thrilled.

  This hand-pulled polymer photogravure print is made with Gamblin Stiff Portland Black and sepia ink, with a dash of Charbonnel Sanguine ink on Arches 88 paper. I printed an edition of 8 numbered prints and 3 A/P prints.

Very pleased with the photograph.

The best I can say about 'Flight' is that it is even better than I was hoping. There is clear evidence of love, craft and care in the print. It is beautifully made and finished. I took it directly to my framer and I am look ing forward to looking at it, on my wall. Thank you 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.
