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 (https://www.rps.org/store/index.php?view=product&path=41&pr...). 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.
