Technique and condition

Silver gelatine photograph printed on Agfa photographic paper. A black and white process that uses a gelatine emulsion of silver bromide. Silver gelatine bromide is now the most popular black and white photographic printing material. The image is centred on the support with thin blank borders. There are no inscriptions. The print is permanently framed in a simple wooden L-section frame finished in white paint and surrounded by a white window mount. On acquisition the print is in good condition. It tends to undulate across the surface plane because the photographic paper is coated on the front side only.
