Hi Tony

Physical prints will be on display at our exhibition at the West End House gallery in Smarden, Kent (the village where George Rodger lived) from April 28-to May 28 - I've listed it on the 'Exhibitions' part of this site - and will be taking part in a show in Paris from 25 May. Our website at evans-hulf.pixelrights.com which shows a wider range of results, although the reduced digital files can't show the material quality of the prints.

Hope you like what you see. I can post more about the experience and process of X-ray film if people are interested. Tom

Hi Tony 

Thanks for the comment on 'Chapman' and links. Lovely cameras and I look forward to sharing notes about the experience of restoring and using these extraordinary instruments - and the resulting pictures. I'm immediately curious about what kind of emulsions/plates/films/paper you use to make exposures.

Tom
