Bob,

The Fresson's have been using an enlarger and have not contact printed in at
least 50 years. Outside of the Fresson family no one is doing Fresson
printing.

My process is very similar to the Fresson process but it still should not be
confused with the original Fresson process. The Fresson's have successfully
kept their process a trade secret for over 105 years and anyone claiming
otherwise may not be fully informed. My work to date has been done using an
enlarger however I am about to abandon it in favor of contact printing using
digital negatives. My choice for a digital negative system is Mark Nelson's
PDN system which seems to be the most refined methodology/workflow
available.

Do you know if Alan working with Jean-Franois in Paris?

cheers! Art
