The Isle of Wight based photographer Eric Mitchell is fascinated by the old processes of photography and by the Bromoil process in particular.
This exhibition shows a small selection of images that Eric has taken over the years, which he refers to as ‘his little gems’.
In very simple terms a Bromoil is a black and white print of which the original image has been replaced by a greasy pigment.
Bromoil was very popular in the first half of the 20th century particularly among the pictorial exhibition photographers, from 1910 through to the 1940s, and a Bromoil society was formed in 1931 by the late Sam Weller FRPS.
