Most of us have seen bromoil prints without realizing it. First devised in 1907, the bromoil process involves bleaching out the silver image from a conventional black-and-white print and replacing it with an image formed from an oil pigment. During the inking process, there are limitless opportunities to manipulate the image; the result is a unique work of art with very painterly and atmospheric aspects. Here, Watkins, the author of several photography books, clearly explains the techniques of bleaching and tanning (to produce a matrix) and inking the matrix. This is the only widely available (i.e., not self-published) book on the topic. Recommended for advanced students of fine art photography.
