Printing Black and White on Fine Art Rag?

I tried printing black and white photos on cotton paper (Red River Aurora Fine Art Natural) and the photos came out kinda muddy and lacking depth and contrast. The image looks washed out.

Does anyone have any tips on printing on this type of media? I have seen great black and white photos on this type of paper, so I know it can be done.

I am using a Canon 9000 Mark II printer, which is dye based. Do these papers work better with pigment ink?

I am printing from Photoshop with all ICC profiles installed, soft proofing, etc. OEM inks.

Any tips appreciated.
