Rankin x Latitude Festival

Continuing our long-standing support for visual artists at the culturally focused Latitude Festival, this year Metro are delighted to be producing exhibition installation with Iconic British photographer and director, Rankin.

Famed for his iconic celebrity portraits, the portrait and fashion photographer and director has captured everyone from David Bowie to The Queen. But what’s it like to be shot by the legendary photographer?

In a cutting-edge partnership with Latitude, Rankin will deliver a keynote in the Music + Film Arena discussing three fearless decades behind the lens and the creative boundaries between art and artists. And in an iconic festival first, Rankin will also set up a live studio in the Faraway Forest where lucky festival-goers can have their portraits taken by the trailblazer himself.

Metro has produced a wall-to-wall installation of Rankin’s most iconic portraits via Direct To Media on Foamex, that will provide the perfect setting for a pop-up portrait studio in the middle of the Faraway Forest.

This is an artist spanning cultures and generations; the creator of Cool Britannia who stuck around long after the party finished, and has now become an icon in his own right. Rankin x Latitude is a one-off opportunity to hear from and be photographed by one of the world’s most prolific photographers.

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.
