This weekend was one of playing with toddlers in imaginary fields, drinking too much wine and watching James Moreton make the 10*8 RC prints that I am selling to fund Katil Var. Thankfully the hottest day of the year in England wasn’t matched in James’ Northern Ireland…
I am not physiologically suited to printing. Being red/green colour blind, I can’t see anything under the red lights of a darkroom, and being unable to wink renders focusing on the grain next to impossible. So I was pretty much relegated to being a bit part player in the process. I’d like to think I was the creative director, but, in reality I had the presence of Ivanka Trump at the G20.
Anyhow, after 3 solid days of test prints, minor chemical headaches, dodging and burning, drying and flattening, we ended up with 16 or so reference prints. These are all of the ones I am selling or have sold on this site, plus a few more to sell a bit later. All limited to editions of 20. I must say, they look exceptional.
After he’s made the 320 prints, James will be learning the far more cumbersome process of lithium printing for an exhibiton I’ll put on. No rest for the wicked.
Great guy. Great host. Great photographer. Great printer. Thanks mate.
