Luscious photographic material

Silver gelatin is the most luscious photographic material. Prove me wrong.

In support of my argument, I give you the curly sculpture of an air-dried print, the sounds of its crisp tension, as well as its luxurious surface. We’re “not supposed” to touch the surface. “Oils,” they say. But touch one. Especially a glossy one. It feels like a baby’s perfect skin, firm and smooth. And it’s full of actual silver.

I rest my case.
