Contact prints are generally considered a historic technique, especially prominent in the 19th century, yet many photographers are now using qualities of the contact print as an important part of their practice. Part of a return to traditional processes, contact prints reflect very particular and individualistic concerns, including those which necessitate contemplation and a belief in the unity of technique and expression.
Exhibition opening with wine and finger food.
