Service Spotlight: Lambda Silver

Lambda Silver.jpg

Robertson Davies –  by Nigel Dickson

Lambda Silver Gelatin prints are prints made from any type of digital file, either scanned from film as in this case or from current state of the art digital cameras.
In our lab we expose the file on a Durst Lambda 76 and then take the paper downstairs and process as we would an enlarger based print. We have one of Canada’s largest commercial fibre base darkrooms and can handle prints up to 30 x 72 inches .
The paper is Ilford Galerie grade 4 and the contrast and tonal adjustments are controlled in Photoshop, Capture One or Lightroom. Or these adjustments can be tweaked at time of printing on the imaging device.
These prints are the ultimate in reproduction and exhibit the traditional silver gelatin look: deep blacks, silvery midtones and brilliant highlights.
As with all silver gelatin prints, the image resides in the emulsion and to the viewer the image glows from within.
These prints follow the same Ilford archival process sequence and can be further enhanced with toning, selenium or split sepia or a combination of both.
Silver prints are the museum and top gallery standard for exhibiting and collecting and are designed for the very best images for long term storage or display.

Kindred popped up in Montreal October 20 and 21st at The Ecomusée Du Fier Monde. After driving the show up from Toronto, we had a quick install before inviting eager attendees in to see the exhibition. And what a night! A full house right until the end. Saturday the show was open for general viewing, the natural light that streamed in making the space even more beautiful.

Overall, the show was a success! Seeing all of the images of the subjects who are very personal to each photographer was very moving.

Kindred is a portrait exhibition printed entirely using permanent processes. Each photographer has submitted an image of someone within their community that they admire along with a description of their relationship to their subject. The result is an exhibition of people from all walks of life who are being celebrated through the photographic medium.
Kindred will first be popping up for two days in Montreal where we have one branch of our network within the photographic community. This exhibition is comprised of a large number of Quebec artists, allowing for a true exchange when the show is installed in Toronto this November.

Derek Crowe is an adventurer, storyteller and trail builder. I am inspired by his photographs and words which reflect a deep connection to the people, the land and the history of the North. Our paths often cross in the tiny town of Carcross, Yukon where he mentors First Nations youth building world renowned trails on their traditional lands. I photographed Derek as part of The Builders Project, a collaboration with writer Jenn Roberts to chronicle the collective history of Yukon mountain biking.
