Premium Silver Prints
Premium silver prints are for the discerning art collector. They are, by their hand crafted nature, limited edition, fine art items.
They display outstanding tonality as photographs are shot on black and white negative film and hand developed in a darkroom. A very high degree of technical know-how is required to make them.
Each print is unique, made on the best Ilford baryta silver papers and processed using the finest chemistry. Each one is treated with selenium toner to achieve museum standard archival permanence.
This process is over 150 years old and is the process used by all of the great 20th century photographers.
The finished prints are considered to be the best in terms of quality but for me they are expressive prints; prints that have emotional resonance.
Please look through the galleries here and if you see something you like, let me know.
Please note that none of the colour images are available as premium darkroom prints.
The shifting sands and eternally changing land and seascapes of our beautiful county Wexford coastline is where I go for solace and inspiration.
I publish the pictures I make in hand-crafted, large format, hardback, extremely limited edition book collections of at most ten copies. No two books are the same.
They are all available as prints.
