Galerie Prints was created to bring you original, actual darkroom-produced –
hand-printed black & white photography made directly from the original negative –
and Premium Colour Photography, produced as C-type photographic prints,
utilising the original transparency where possible.
Working directly with some of the World’s most renowned and prestigious
Photographic Archives & Collections and photographers,
Galerie Prints has access to a truly vast number of extraordinary
and beautiful Original Photographs.
All our Black & White photographs are produced from the original negative* ,
in a darkroom by highly skilled technicians and are hand retouched, print by print.
We offer 2 Paper Types for our black & white prints :
Resin or Fibre
Silver Gelatin RC (Resin Coated) Paper
Resin Coated Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe Paper
is a high quality Archival photographic darkroom paper,
with a resin emulsion coating , which gives a modern even finish (see above example)
great clarity with archival longevity.
Here the fixing and drying processes are machine aided
and the print is then hand-retouched.
Limited Edition Silver Gelatin Fibre Paper
Beautiful, Ilford Multigrade FB Warmtone darkroom Fibre Paper
(museum/exhibition standard traditional photographic paper)
which is fixed and dried by hand, as well as then hand-retouched.
This paper tends to give greater depth and tonality and has a distinctive ‘silky’ textured finish (see above example)
giving very deep blacks, a wide range of midtones and stunning clarity.
All our Fibre prints are a Limited Edition of 300 regardless of print size.
C-Type colour Prints
Beautiful, Silver Hallide Crystal colour prints,
on light activated Archival Photographic paper.
Our C-type prints are the industry photographic standard, giving
exceptional clarity and vivid colours.
