© Karel Fonteyne , 1977. Fashion on his best : Preparation time ! End of year we will exhibit some great , never showed , fashion images of Karel Fonteyne. For his 50 years of photography we will exhibit 5 special platinum prints next to some other great work. ..... ABOUT Platinum-palladium: It's a traditional printing technique that goes back to the 19th century. Compared to silver prints, platinum prints benefit from an extended tonal-range, more subtle blacks, and a higher definition. Platinum prints are also among the most permanent man-made objects. The platinum metals are more stable than gold.
