Color Management!

Color Management!

I was trying to find out whats bigger the Flatiron Building or the Sphinx (the Egyptian one) and I came across this awesome photo of the Flatiron Building by Edward Steichen, but it was small, so I went to Google Image Search to find a bigger one. Internet, lets try to figure this color shit out next, ok? (Still not sure about the original question.)

maybe you should go take a look at it at the met. it sounds like the color variation is due to different prints of the photograph:

Steichen added color to the platinum print that forms the foundation of this photograph by using layers of pigment suspended in a light-sensitive solution of gum arabic and potassium bichromate. Together with two variant prints in other colors, also in the Museum’s collection, The Flatiron is the quintessential chromatic study of twilight.

Laptopograms

Laptopograms

Seen in this full screen laptopogram are After the Bath by William Bouguereau, Poppy in Klotski, terminal running dmesg, and the Phoenix fractal from Xaos.

Laptopograms are images made by pressing photosensitive paper onto a laptop screen and flashing an image in a manner not unlike contact printing or photograms.

‘Laptopogram’ is a misnomer - I reckon they can be made with pretty much any monitor. Perhaps ‘Luminous Screen Emulsion Transfers’ is a better.

Here, however, the negative is a digital image - and is flashed for a little time onto the paper before developing the image in a darkroom.
