In a world that is over saturated with digital colour imagery, monochrome prints offer the photographer and viewer a more involving experience with an arrangement of tone and form that is often more suited to the subject matter.
There has been a resurgence of interest in black & white photography and printing in recent years with many photographers realising that monochrome offers artistic possibilities that colour just can not match.
Photographers can now produce digital photographs with a spectacular color range, with brilliant reds, blues, greens and yellows, yet the simple power of a classic monochrome image can leave even the most brilliantly conceived color photograph in the artistic dust.
We have over 35 years experience in black and white printing and can thoroughly recommend a wide selection of fine art papers that when combined with a 12 pigment ink fine art printer, far exceeds the tonal quality and brilliance previously available in the traditional darkroom.
We are now entering a new golden age of Black and White print making with outstanding image quality and archival qualities that can not be questioned.
Although many may still refer back to the days of the darkroom as being the benchmark for 'true B&W' the reality is that we how have the technology available to create far beyond what was possible in the pre-digital age.
