Josephine Sacabo’s new photogravure portfolios are featured on www.photogravure.com.
“I have been making photogravures for about a year and learning this process has been as exciting and gratifying as my first contact sheet in the darkroom was 30 years ago. From the moment I rolled back my first sheet of paper off the press I realized that this was what I had been trying to do with my photographic prints for 30 years. I cannot imagine doing anything else now.
Seeing the image actually embedded in the beautiful paper surface, the quality of the sharp grain and long tonal range make this process by far the most aesthetically rewarding. And I’m proud to be in the company of many great photographers who have and are using it.”
