Jerome Tanon lifts the curtain on his epic shot of Victor De Le Rue, which graced the cover of our 2014 Photo Annual. How many tries? And what's up with that collage?
“I made this lith print in my darkroom, and cut it into pieces so I could dip them in different chemical toning baths to see how the paper reacted. You have to do this for every paper- and developer combination to know how to find a certain color again. I tried some of the many combos I use sometimes, with copper chloride, potassium ferricyanide, sepia toners, selenium, and blue toners in specific orders and concentrations. I also cut it around the centre so I could compare with the original tone. I was gonna keep this in a drawer but when I glued it back together it looked so cool I scanned and framed it.” - Jerome
