Introduced in 1873, the platinum printing process helped viewers see photography as a fine art medium, capable of creating moody, velvety images. The complex technique fell out of favor at the advent of WWI but a number of artists, like Georgia O’ Keefe and Edward Weston, continued to explore the process for its aesthetic qualities. Artist Scott B. Davis employs historical printing methods today, and also builds his own large-format cameras to photograph urban and natural landscapes. In conversation with assistant curator of photography Arpad Kovacs, Davis discusses his photographic practice and the challenges of working with a medium that is notoriously difficult to manage.
