An original darkroom 10×8 print of Talacre Lighthouse, North Wales printed by myself in my homemade darkroom. You are purchasing the exact print shown below. Each print is unique and undergoes the traditional handmade process of exposure with differing times for dodging and burning to lighten and darken different areas of the image. The image is made using methods dating back hundreds of years, the print may have some flaws, spots, not centred and even grip marks from the pegs holding the image up to dry (see top left) but this is a beautiful original print and each print is different with no two the same.
You will own an original darkroom print with some or all of the above characteristics which I think adds to the character of a traditional printed image that you can enjoy for many decades.
A very unique opportunity to purchase an original print.
