Geoff Chaplin


Discontented with the trend towards digital imaging and infinitely repeatable ‘perfection’ he began seeking an alternative printing process – something which had a character and life of its own, and something which preferably was not repeatable. “Gum printing” turned out to be the process he was seeking. Dating from the very early days of photography – discovered in the 1830s – it became popular around 1890-1920 among the pictorialists and photo-secessionists for the painterly nature of the images.
