The following images are all 16" x 20" "Lith Prints." Lith processing is a method of working in the darkroom to create extremely beautiful prints with rich blacks delicately colored midtones and bright white highlights. The technique involves heavily over-exposing a black and white negative onto a suitable black and white paper and then only partially developing it in a very dilute Lith A/B developer. This method produces subtly colorful monochrome prints with special properties and characteristics in terms of tonal distribution and response to toners. The flexibility of the method offers limitless ways of interpreting a negative and produces prints quite different in appearance from the usual processes. The excitement and charm of the method is that, if desired, each print may be unique, each one more exquisite than the last.
