The Landscape Series was created with a hand-made pinhole camera using 4x5 inch black and white film with several different Wratten filters over the pinhole during exposure and is inspired by the French landscapes mostly near my home as well as other regions in France. And I must say that my friend, Jeffrey Blondes, was also instrumental in my love for the landscape.
I use no Photoshop in any of these photographs, this is entirely an analog process from beginning to end.
The prints are made on either silver chlorobromide baryta fibre based paper or photo sensitised linen using a lithographic developer which yields its unique colour and granularity due to the fibres of the paper being revealed in the surface image itself.
30x40cm (12x16") Edition of 20.
About Robert Mann: In 1989, with an international reputation in photography and photographic printing, Robert moved to Paris France where he now resides. Robert has published several photographic processes and his darkroom is on the cover of the renowned book “The New Darkroom Handbook” and featured inside. He currently uses pinhole cameras exclusively to achieve his ethereal images and continues to print privately for a select group of photographers while producing his own works for gallery and museum exhibitions. Recently Robert has been working with Brad Pitt, first producing his story of Angelina Jolie for W Magazine and continues printing Pitt's massive archive of negatives. Pitt has thus become a collector of Mann’s work purchasing eleven prints from the “Orbit Series” and “Flower Series”.
