Miles Davis at his "Miles Davis Quartet" session, Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, NJ, March 6, 1954 (WDAVIM32).. This 20” x 24” platinum print with an image size of 16” x 16” was made from Francis Wolff's original negative by master printer and photographer Chris McCaw. Only 8 prints were made. The print ships in a tube. THIS IS THE LAST PLATINUM PRINT OF THIS IMAGE. NO MORE WILL BE CREATED.

Platinum paper is created by hand coating an acid-free paper with liquid platinum. The image is then contact printed onto the paper, creating a print that is the same size as the negative. The image becomes embedded in the paper, creating a three-dimensional depth specific to platinum prints. The delicate, rich platinum tones range from warm black, to reddish brown, to expanded mid-tone grays that are unobtainable in silver prints. Over the years, the only obstacle to widespread enjoyment of platinum has been lack of access to this rare process. Platinum prints are not only exceptionally beautiful, they are among the most permanent objects invented by human beings. The platinum metals are more stable than gold.
