Photopolymer Gravure

Using  modern materials, methods and technology artists and photographers can tap into the alchemy that is gravure printing.  This site is dedicated to furthering this cherished look of lush tones and textures by giving the digital age a way to achieve soulfulness through ink and paper.


Featured Photographer

Jim Hamstra

Aspen was shot by Jim Hamstra while in Colorado for 3 months in 2010.  It is one of the very first Direct-to-Plate solar exposures done during initial dtp process experiments by Don Messec and Deb Riley.  I am honored to show it to you here.
