Luis Camnitzer of Pratt's Institute New-York comes to Italy to teach multi-plate color-etching, and photo-etching on light sensitive plates. Students apply soft- or hardground, 'liftground' and make multi-plate etchings. With Camnitzer and assistant David Finkbeiner the artist practises PHOTO-etching: a photo is transfered on a light sensitive plate and becomes like an etching: to be inked, wiped and printed. 

As resin particles are used an aquatint box is needed. A photo can become a work of Art. Talbot in England, Klietsch in Csechoslovakia, the Talbot-Klic process sets the pace for master photographers like Alfred Stieglitz.
