3. Silver Gelatin Fibre Prints

The traditional process for fine art photography, silver gelatin fibre prints are exhibition quality archival prints either hand printed and processed in in-house Archive darkrooms from original negatives or from highest quality files as digital bromide prints.  Also known as baryta, fibre prints offer full tonal range, exquisite depth and superb contrast. All fibre prints are sold in limited editions of 300.

4. Colour C-Type Prints

C-type prints are a colour print made on light sensitive paper using a chromogenic process. Rather than inks onto paper, chemicals within the paper react with exposure to light and so the resulting image is contained within the paper’s emulsion. Also referred to as Silver Halide Crystal prints, C type prints are now widely accepted as the standard for producing photographic colour prints. Our C types have a Pearl finish.

Best for:

  • Colour photographic images
  • Colour clarity
