The platinum palladium alternative photographic process is a specialized printing technique that utilizes precious metals, namely platinum and palladium, for image production.
This method is renowned for its exceptional archival quality and longevity, resulting in prints that can endure for centuries. By coating a paper or other suitable medium with a light-sensitive solution containing platinum and palladium salts, the image is exposed using UV light and developed through chemical processes.
The resulting prints exhibit a distinct tonal range, rich in warm and subtle shades, with exquisite detail and a unique aesthetic. The use of platinum and palladium in this process adds both prestige and durability, ensuring that the prints maintain their quality and beauty for generations to come.
