I found this foyer when shooting in Milan. I was so captivated by it I kept returning to it again and again, capturing it in daylight and after dark. There is something cinematic about it which is what drew me to it at the time so I am pleased that in making the darkroom print the final result has intensified that effect. To me this picture, a symmetrical corridor leading to two offset doors, lends to creating many stories.
This image illustrates how many sensitive choices must be made when it comes to the analogue printing an image. In a completely darkened room you control the colour balance and density. You then emerge into light to assess the image and decided what adjustments you want to make when you go back into the dark to achieve the final visual effect of the image. It is very different process to making a digital photographic artwork.
We make your artworks to order in our Cambridge Studio.
Although we always send out your order as quickly as possible the artwork might take two weeks to make. If you require it urgently for a gift or interior design project get in touch before placing your order and we will advise on availability and options.

Conventionally all our framed work is dry-mounted onto aluminium. This ensures a very flat image surface in the short and the long term. The prints are matted (window mounted) using a museum quality 100% cotton rag board especially manufactured to be compatible with the C-type archival Kodak photographic paper Richard uses. He makes the prints in his own dark room. The print sizes are taken from traditional photographic paper sizes. Traditionally with photographic prints they are signed and numbered on the back, they can be signed on the front of the mount by request.
