The History and Conservation of Digital Prints

Detail of an IRIS print, showing a typical, regular screen pattern. Due to a spot of accidental spit (the circle in the image), the water soluble dyes have bled along the surface of the fine art paper. Originally developed for the printing industry, IRIS Graphics printers were embraced by photographers in the 1990s for their high-resolution printing on a variety of materials. Photo: Martin Jürgens.
