Gallery OstLicht presents in collaboration with the George Hoyningen-Huene Estate Archive, Platinum palladium prints by pioneering photographer George Hoyningen-Huene.
Platinum palladium prints are prized for their permanence and rich tonal spectrum. Employing metals more precious than gold, the process was used to artistic effect by masters such as Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen around 1900. In the 1960s, Irving Penn started experimenting with platinum palladium and others followed, including Horst P. Horst. In 1968 Huene had bequeathed his archive to Horst, and in the 1980s Horst began to make platinum palladium prints from Huene’s negatives.
These prints have a lush, matt surface and their tones range from velvety blacks to delicate whites. In 2020 the George Hoyningen-Huene Estate Archives launched a new series of limited-edition platinum palladium prints. The creation of these photographs is undertaken with the utmost care and consideration for the photographer’s original vision and intentions.
Collectors can be secure in the knowledge that the production of each limited-edition print has been closely supervised and approved by the George Hoyningen-Huene Estate Archives.
