British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Recently I watched Silver Footprint a film about legendary black & white printer Robin Bell. The film provides a great opportunity to see this master craftsman demonstrate his skill and vision in the darkroom. Bell has printed for many well-know photographers and so many iconic images have had his expert eye and technical proficiency added to them.

It is available at £19.50 (including postage) bought via the RPS website ( For those of you who have been in a darkroom or appreciated the additional level of creativity that a skillful printer can bring then this is for you. If you are a lover of lens based media and appreciate fine photography then this is money well spent.
