Lemon & Leaf, 2020

THE GIFT EDIT.

Regular price £145.00

Lemon & Leaf is a charming and honest still life, shot by award-winning photographer Tif Hunter. Tif has a continuing preoccupation with photographing natural objects, coupled with a love for the imperfect.

Originally shot as a tintype - a 19th century technique creating photography directly onto metal without the use of film - this work has been printed as a small edition C-type print on matte Fujicolour Crystal Archive paper.

“These things are beautiful, but they are also unique and in their own way not perfect [...] The one thing you can’t do with a tintype is retouch it. That feeling of truth is something that has meant an awful lot to me in this process.”

Lemon & Leaf comes backed with an authentication sticker; numbered and signed by the artist, accompanied by a digital certificate of authenticity.

WHAT EVEN IS A C-TYPE PRINT?


A digital C-type print is a photographic print made from a digital file rather than a negative. In contrast with the darkroom or analogue technique, a C-type print is developed by exposing light-sensitive material to LEDs or lasers, with the material then washed using methods similar to traditional photography. The “C” stands for chromogenic. 

At Darklight Art, we sell works by photographers and visual artists as both giclée and C-type prints. C-types are known to have much more subtlety of tone, known as continuous tone, than Giclée prints. Because of this, C-types have smoother gradients from light - dark, making them better-suited to photographic prints where there are areas of high shadow, and skin tones.

ECO PACKAGING

We’ve worked hard to find the most environmentally friendly packaging on the market. Our print boxes and poster tubes are made from recycled cardboard and are fully recyclable. The tube ends are made from recycled plastic and are also recyclable. 

Our tissue paper is recycled, eco-friendly and vegan. It's PH neutral and approximately 35% of the electrics used to make it is produced from renewable energy.

For the final touch, our tape is paper based and water activated, so no need for any nasty adhesives or plastics. It’s made from - you guessed it - 100% recycled content and printed with soy ink.

Not a bad start.
