Under the Arch, Manchester

Fotographija,Print Proof,Manchester, Alan Falzon,Hand Made,Silver Gelatin,Limited Edition

I shot Under the Arch, Manchester during my birthday holiday in 2014. The area is some were near the canals, if  I remember correctly it is the Deansgate area. The day was over cast and dull with the area under the arch very dark. The small light patches and urban design of the surrounding area created a calming  effect in such a busy city.

As suspected it is very difficult to print. Keeping the details in the brick wall while at the same time muting the white buildings top right means i have to dodge and burn quite a bit.

The final print is available for sale in a Limited Edition run of 5, excluding one proof. Hand printed on 8×10 inch Silver Gelatine Fibre paper and toned. All prints have a small white border.

Unfortunately my scanner does not do justice to this proof so please read this information for more details.

*Scanned with a cheap scanner.

Morris Station Wagon, Manchester, 2014

Print Proof,Morris Station Wagon, Manchester, Alan Falzon,Hand Made,Silver Gelatin,Limited Edition,Fotographija

Morris Station Wagon, Manchester, 2014  is one of my favourite prints from my two week holiday in the UK in 2014. Shot in a side street, while lost on my way walking to the Imperial War Museum from Manchester city centre. It took quite some time to find the right balance of tones that matched the paper and feeling of nostalgia. Morris station wagons‘ were also very popular in Malta. After printing 3 slightly different versions I asked my father for his opinion and we setled on this. Unfortunately my cheap scanner did not reproduce the warm tones.

Morris Station Wagon, Manchester, 2014 is available for sale in a Limited Edition of 20.

*Scanned with a cheap scanner.

The Blue Door, Holmfirth, UK

The Blue Door, Holmfirth, UK

These were taken in my room at The Blue Door, a bed and breakfast in Holmfirth. I was there to attend a whole day darkroom workshop with Andrew Sanderson and the 1st two shots were inspired by his work. Andrew is an Ilford Master Printer but this was not the main reason I booked his workshop. His photography is just gorgeous, not the typical photography. His subjects, composition and lighting  are simple but very powerful. So i purchased two of his books. In simple words, i read them with in a few days and after each chapter all i wanted to do was shoot!

During the workshop he showed his own work to explain techniques but i loved watching him print my own negatives. We went trough cameras, lenses and all other related items. My printing improved immediately.

Highly recommended.

Holmfirth, Yorkshire is were i spent 4 days out of my two weeks birth day holiday in 2014. After watching lots of episodes from Last of the Summer wine with my grand mother, i hoped that one day i will visit this gorgeous part of the UK.

So you can imagine how surprised and enthusiastic i was when i realised that the one day darkroom workshop i was planning with Andrew Sanderson was actually in Holmfirth!!

If you need to relax then i highly recommend you visit this little village and book your accommodation at The Blue Door.

Carnival Prisoner, 2014

Print Proof, Carnival Prisoner

Carnival Prisoner  is one of those portrait you have in mind during carnival. Valletta is always packed with people making backgrounds very busy so the best time for portraits is  late on a Friday and Saturday night. This teen was a few meters out side my home, in a side street. This created a bare background and with a low powered flash I managed to capture a dramatic portrait.

This print is available for sale in a Limited Edition run of 15. It is printed on 8×10 inch Fibre Based Silver Gelatine paper with a gloss finish and toned. All prints have a small white boarder all around.

Please read this information regarding the quality of the scanned print.

*Scanned with a cheap scanner.
