PHOTOGRAVURE PRINT

Photogravure printing is a technique developed in the XIX century, allowing the transfer from a photographic image unto a copper plaque through photosensitive gelatine. The quality of the gravure realized with this technique is well beyond the results of any other techniques. This no-trace procedure allows the transfer of subtle shades of grey from the original photograph through an extremely thin grain. The profound black resulted from the thickness of the ink makes the result incomparable to any others, and is considered to be the most esthetical way of printing images. Photographers such as Peter Henry Emerson, Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Curtis have been seduced by the quality of this technique and have chosen it for their own images. After the end of World War II, the photogravure printing is no longer practiced apart from a few crafting studios. 

Dan Cristea is a photographer from Toronto, Canada who has embraced mobile photography since the very beginning of this artistic incarnation. To his credit, Dan co-organized the first mobile photography workshop ever in San Francisco in 2011. He is also the co-creator of the website lofimode.com, dedicated to the art and education of mobile photography.  Dan is part of a collective of artists called Tiny Collective, whose mission is to promote and showcase some of today’s finest mobile artists from around the world by hosting shows and events on a global scale. Dan considers himself a visual storyteller always pushing the boundaries, delving ever deeper into the possibilities of this exciting medium.
