Early photographic printing processes (often referred to as Alternative or Alt-Photography) require detailed hand-crafting by the artist. The texture, material and treatment of the paper on which the image is formed. Literally, ‘The Skin of the Print’ – adds real depth to the appearance and feel of the work.

The artists – drawn from the UK, South America, Europe, Russia and Australia – present portraiture, landscapes, still-lifes, body studies and abstract works. All pieces are contemporary, but produced using nineteenth century recipes and techniques.
