In November 2016 and as part of the highly successful PhotoBath exhibition featuring examples of work by Sebastiao Salgado, Max Caffell gave a fascinating talk about his own career as a fine platinum print maker working with Salgado and the other top photographers he’s worked with.
In this presentation he describes the platinum process in depth, it’s history and why top photographers are still drawn to it as the ultimate expression of their black and white work.
He goes on to discuss renowned photographer’s work and his professional creative collaborations with them and what their work means to him.
This was a fully attended event that included a Q&A session and Max kindly brought some physical examples of his work that were free for audience members to view at the end.
This was a highly memorable event that helped establish PhotoBath as a serious force for promoting photography in Bath.
