These photographs are hand printed in a darkroom by myself on Ilford silver gelatin papers, selenium toned and washed thoroughly for archival permanence to last many years. All prints are shipped using an international priority tracked and signed-for service. Returned prints damaged during shipping will automatically be replaced.

When fibre-based silver gelatin prints are air dried slowly for 48 hours they tend to curl like these test prints
Prints are placed in the heat press to remove curl and allowed to cool between two sheets of glass before storing.
Prints are spotted if needed to remove any dust marks
Prints are stamped on the reverse with a permanent archival ink before being signed and numbered for limited edition
Prints are placed into a archival 75 micron polyester sleeve for protection and then sandwiched between 5mm Correx plastic board before being placed into a card envelope
