Join us on Wednesday June 20th for an afternoon of
Rediscovered Photographs at Calvert 22 Foundation.
We’ll begin with a curator’s tour of the exhibition Family Values: Polish Photography Now, the first major exhibition dedicated to Polish photography in the UK, which amplifies themes of identity, home and family in the context of social and political change.
The tour will be followed by a print swap introduced by Professor Steve Macleod, Director of Metro Imaging. The print swap’s theme is “Rediscovered Photographs”, inspired by the work of the photographers in the Family Values exhibition.
Finally, you’ll have the chance to participate in one-on-one portfolio review sessions with editors of The Calvert Journal.
2pm – 5pm Wednesday 20th June 2018.
Calvert 22 Foundation, 22 Calvert Avenue, London E2 7JP
Attendees must book a space and bring along one of their own photographic prints that fits the theme “Rediscovered Photographs”. It can be an image from their own personal archive of work; one that never made the final cut for a series or project; one that had been forgotten about; a mistake (happy or otherwise) that was kept regardless; or a photograph that otherwise fits the theme. Your photo can be as large or as small as you like, but we recommend prints around 10″ x 8″ or 10″ x 12″ in size.
Your photo can bring an already existing print, or you can order one via Metro Imaging Self-Service and receive 20% off any paper and print size. A discount code will be provided to you once you book your place. You can order your prints here.
Entry is free but there are a limited number of spaces, so be sure to book your place here!
Prints ready for collection from 4 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We are able to produce bigger and better C-Type photo prints than anywhere else in the UK. Our photo prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches (3m x 1.8m) in size, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.
While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.
We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.
After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.
When ordering online, we offer a limited range of classic photo frames, in three finishes: white photo frame, smooth black photo frame or a solid light oak frame. Alternately, just order your prints online to take advantage of our great value online ordering system, then contact us to discuss alternate framing styles and our range of thousands of frame mouldings.
