One of the great things about traditional darkroom photography is that there are hundreds of weird and wonderful printing processes and techniques to explore. One of my favourites is lith printing which much like a polaroid image will give you an image that you can't ever quite repeat again, what I love about the process is the way that it manipulates tones. You get bullet sized grain in the shadows and very soft and delicate grain in the highlights, tone is also altered depending on the paper, sometimes salmon pink and other times more neutral in tone. It's a wonderful process and at some point I had to try binding a book with one of my prints, this particular shot was taken in Budapest a wonderful city and well worth a visit.
