As photography plays an ever-important role in the contemporary art scene, the material available to present images becomes richer and more diverse. Beside the traditional dark room enlargement by hand and c-print, and Ultragiclee, which has become popular in recent years, more types of different media, materials and methods have been utilized to create many works of photography.
