SPANNING THE HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAVURE, there has been only a small group of photographers to practice the technique and apply it to their own work, the most prominent of whom are James Craig Annan, Peter Henry Emerson and Alvin Langon Coburn. The impressions made by these artists represent the union of vision and craft, each selecting the photogravure process purely for its aesthetic - an aesthetic that was beautifully suited for the pictorialists.

Over the course of time political, economic and aesthetic forces edged photogravure into retirement; only recently have we witnessed its revival. Today, another small group of dedicated artists are using photogravure as their medium of choice. Mostly self-taught, their work is beautiful and their commitment to the photogravure process is unquestionable.
