About the print technique and process
Black and white photographs
Cathleen Naundorf ‘s black and white prints are high value silver gelatin prints which are printed by hand under her control. The prints are made in a dark room from a 4 x 5 or 8 x 10 inch negativ film.
After a contact proof is produced with her notes for development details, a first large print will be produced on ILFORD.
The final silver gelantin print stays for a short time in a selenium or sistan bath to guarantee long term conservation of the print.
In the final step, the photograph will be retouched by hand. Printing of large size photographs takes between two to six weeks.
Cathleen Naundorf mostly works with 4 x 5 and 8 x 10 inch Polaroids. After scanning the original, the colour image will be developed in a bath and printed on Fuji Paper.
« Fresco technique »
The exposed Polaroid will be interrupted during the developing process and transferred on an acid – free paper.
During her career, Naundorf developed her special polaroid transfer technique who gave her photographs a pictoresque style. Which she named « Fresco technique » to express her background of painting.
