Harukanaru Nikki, Gone Are the Days, Size: w. 20.3 cｍ(7.9") x h. 25.4 cm (10"), set of 6 sheets, collotype
The more photography is digitalized, the more representation in hand-made photographs are needed. The “Collotype” is one of the classical printing processes which existed in pioneer days of photography. Even though this printing technique is very rare at this moment, it is drawing attention as one of the processes for photography again.
Benrido has published the portfolio titled “Gone Are the Days” with 6 monochrome photographs of Shoji Ueda in collotype printing.
It has been possible to represent these prints in smooth gray shades from deep black to white and warm tones using pigments.
