Paper Abstract

The Lippmann photographic process relied on very fine grain silver halide emulsions with panchromatic spectral sensitizers. Emulsions for this process have not been commercially available since around the turn of the century. Recent availability of suitable Russian silver halide emulsions (PFG-03c) from Slavich Company made revisiting this process possible. Experimentation with these plates resulted in full color spectrums and outdoor still life photographs that gave a basis for further investigation of making laboratory silver halide emulsions. This paper will present procedures and results for the making of Lippmann photographs from silver halide emulsions and from other recording materials.
