  • Platinum Print

    The Platinum printing process is a rare and highly appreciated technique that was developed in the late nineteenth century, which only a handful of printers in the world have the expertise to practice today. The technique became virtually extinct after World War I due to the shortage and astronomical price rise of the platinum metal, in which place the gelatin silver printing process became more commonplace.Platinum prints are printed by hand, so each print is unique. The negative, which has to be the same size as the image, is laid directly on a paper that has been treated with a solution containing platinum salts. These salts are embedded in the paper rather than simply lying on top as an emulsion. Since platinum is one of the most stable and unreactive metals, this technique results in a print that is chemically inert which will not react to light or degrade with time.

    In addition to the print’s longevity and rarity, collectors appreciate Platinum prints for their greater tonal range and depth. Rather than a true black or white produced by gelatin silver prints, Platinum prints have a wide range of grey tones which expresses every nuance of detail on the photograph.

About the Artist Terry O'Neill

Terry O’Neill CBE is one of the world’s most collected photographers, with work hanging in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. From presidents to pop stars, he photographed on the frontlines of fame for over six decades. O’Neill began his career at the birth of the 1960s. While other photographers concentrated on earthquakes, wars and politics, O’Neill realised that youth culture was a breaking news story on a global scale; he began chronicling the emerging faces of the film, fashion and music scenes that would go on to define the Swinging Sixties. By 1965 he was being regularly commissioned by the biggest magazines and newspapers in the world.

Remembering His Legacy Terry O'Neill

No other photographer has embraced in such detail the spectrum of fame, capturing the icons of our age, from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, singers from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Amy Winehouse, big-screen stars from Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot to Nicole Kidman, modern supermodels from Naomi Campbell to Kate Moss, and almost every incarnation of James Bond from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig. He photographed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones when they were still struggling young bands in 1963, and pioneered backstage reportage photography with David Bowie, Elton John, Eric Clapton, and Chuck Berry. His images have adorned historic rock albums, movie posters and international magazine covers. Terry O'Neill passed away in November 2019, but his legacy lives on.
