Bromoil Prints...

Bromoil printing is one of the early photographic processes. It was first discovered in 1907, and quickly became a great favorite of the photographers of the Pictorialist Movement, led by Alfred Stieglitz and the Photo-Sessionist Group. This movement emphasized mood and atmosphere over clarity of subject matter, and bromoil was a natural choice. The popularity of bromoil printing began to decline again from 1920 to 1940, as more photographers began to emphasize photo-realism, with sharp focus and maximum depth of field, and bromoil printing was very nearly forgotten for more than half a century. Fortunately, a small circle of the faithful (mostly in Great Britain) kept the process alive long enough, and now it is beginning to be revived.
