Paul Cooklin Artist Bio:
In our digital world of 'instant everything', which is mostly mass produced, Paul Cooklin is drawn to analogue film and traditional darkroom printing. His preference for film over digital derives from the nostalgic and timeless 'look' of black and white film, with it's tonal qualities and grain. He is also drawn to the rules of the negative and the traditional printing methods which he finds more rewarding due to the hands-on approach needed to make an individual silver gelatin print. Cooklin's body of work consists of an eclectic collection of prints, spanning various photographic genres which have featured in numerous publications, including TIME magazine, Italian Vogue and are represented by fine art publishers and galleries worldwide. Traditional Printing - Silver Gelatin Prints. Handcrafted black and white silver gelatin prints from 120 and 35mm film made with premium photographic paper and traditional darkroom techniques, by Paul Cooklin. The signed limited edition originals include a backing board, wide mount and signed authenticity documents and are ready to be placed in a 40 x 50 cm frame of your choice. Each print is selenium neutral-toned for added archival permanence which will give many years of viewing pleasure if cared for and displayed correctly. The subtle tones from the silver and fibre paper are best viewed with good light. Silver gelatin prints should be framed behind UV glass and ideally displayed in a bright, well lit space, out of direct sunlight.
