A contact print is a classic printing style usually associated with large format photography. A large negative is pressed up to light sensitive paper and exposed to ultra violet light to create a print.
These prints are made on paper sensitized with the palladium/platinum process. The texture in the prints is from the high quality matte paper used to soak up the light sensitive platinum and palladium salts, these metals are so stable that the paper will fall apart before the image begins to fade.
