But We Are Still Here – Heather Agyepong

Metro worked with performing artist Heather Agyepong recently producing C-type prints for her project ‘But We Are Still Here’ which takes place at the Tate Modern this month.

But We Are Still Here provokes thought, questions and through a series of events and activities considers how culture is produced. Onlookers and participants are invited to voice ideas and experiences and to listen to others whilst considering how culture is (re) produced through our everyday behaviours and activities.

Difficult questions are asked in order to provoke debate, reflection, comment and action and what it might feel like to be visible/invisible, sharing responses in the space, exchange ideas and share experiences as well as participating in a diverse range of activities from zine making to poetry, performance to workshops.

The conversation unfolding on the Tate Exchange floor is framed by a series of photographs by Heather Agyepong to create a thought-provoking installation. Reimagined as Ghanaian Ashanti Warrior Yaa Asantewaa, Agyepong appears in a series of images that raise questions of value, ownership and erasure.

Photo Printing

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.

Fine Art Giclee printing

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.

Black & White printing

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.

Mounting your prints

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.

Framing your photos

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.
