The Print Exposed 2015 Exhibition

The print exposed copy SMALLThe Print Exposed is a unique exhibition aimed at encouraging the understanding, and appreciation for alternative/ historic photographic print processes.
Print methods featured in this exhibition signify that photography has been identified as much with the arts as the sciences. It brings alive the age old argument – where does science end and art begin. Regardless of the answer- the technical expertise displayed in these images bring a wonderful mix of beauty and intrigue created from the art, craft and science of photography. 

R.S.V.P. please as space is very limited

The Printer’s Print: A Decent Exposure

We are now calling for submissions for our upcoming exhibition, ‘The Printers Print: A Decent Exposure’, opening on the 11th of June, 2015.

To us, there is nothing better than looking at other people’s prints.

Working in the darkroom can be a lonely or solitary experience, with the finished product often being stored away without being seen by the wider world.

People are frequently surprised by what we do, and think that traditional methods of printing no longer exist or aren’t relevant but we know that there are many of you out there printing away in your bathrooms or laundries so we want to see what you have made.

We want to give printer-photographer’s an opportunity to display the prints they’re most proud of for us all to enjoy and be inspired by, to learn from each other and to celebrate the creative beauty of the hand crafted print.

Amateurs and professionals alike are welcome to submit.
