    Those nice people at Silverprint have agreed to exhibit some of my prints :smile:. From probably next Monday I'll have six Pt/Pd prints in their lobby area for all the world to see. So if you'd like to see what the real thing looks like (as opposed to the yucky scans I post here) then please go along to Silverprint and take a look.

    While you're there you can support their business by buying some film, or paper or any of the other wonderful analogue bits and bobs that they stock...

    Congrats, Ian. I hope you'll post some pix of the lobby graced with your prints!!!

    Of course, just tell the Greyhound driver to wake you at Waterloo Station. :smile:

    That's good timing: I was going into town this week, including a trip to Silverprint, but now I'll wait until next week!

    Nice one :smile:.

    Ian,

    Just returned from a visit to Silverprint.......your work is simply stunning. From subject to presentation was perfection......such a delight to see. Thank you for exhibiting the finest of fine prints.

    Do you run Pt/Pd workshops?

    Regards,
    Trevor.

    Thanks Trevor. I did consider doing some Pt/Pd workshops last year but for various reasons they didn’t get off the ground. They’re still on my “to do” list though…

    Ian, if you get around to that particular item on your todo list then I would be very interested. Did a workshop with David Chow recently and saw some of your prints. It would very interesting to see how you work differently...

    You're wicked Delphine :wink: - I almost had heart failure when I read that! Thanks for your kind words.

    Here's a photo as requested:

    (A photo of an arrangement like this really highlights the poor quality of modern digital point and shoots lenses!)

    I was in Silverprint yesterday (didn't know a photo was wanted - I had two "real" cameras with me :wink: )...

    Brilliant to see the real thing rather than the gallery images. Blimey - what a difference!

    Cheers, Bob.
