Reply To: Photographs that cause image tranfers

Ana-Elisa Arredondo

Thank you for the information and suggestion, however, it was only after I have made certain observations (i.e. good image stability, brownish tonality, dead matte surface, produced circa 1895) that I resorted to using the image transfer evidence as a way to id the prints.

If the prints had been slightly more glossy, I would have thought them to be matte collodion prints, and if they had that aquatint bit texture under high magnification, I would have dubbed them photogravures, but I could not.

If I get an opportunity, I will try to upload an image or two.  Thank you, Susan!
