Silver Gelatin Prints
Island Darkroom specialises in medium format (120mm) ﬁne art silver gelatin prints.
This analogue printing process is relatively unchanged since its introduction in the late 1800s. Typically, it consists of exposing an image (through a camera, or otherwise) onto a material such as ﬁlm or glass which has been coated in a light sensitive emulsion. After developing through 3 different chemicals, this creates a negative. An enlarger is then used to hold these negatives in place, and expose the image onto light-sensitive paper. The name silver gelatin comes from the mixture of silver salts and gelatin binder which coat the paper.
All Island Darkroom photographs are hand-printed to order on archival quality ﬁne art photographic paper with a pearl ﬁnish. Prints will be delivered unframed in protective packaging.
