Colour Carbon Transfer Prints

John Bladen Bentley


Tracing the footprint of man over time, Bentley’s work deals with sensibility, not concept – the poetry of chance. Random brushings with a world where he sees all things as equal, his photographs elevate the mundane into the monumental. These rare, handmade prints, shot in large format, represent 10 years of research and development. Bentley’s permanent pigment prints, a 19th-century technique considered the aristocrat of printmaking, stand at the pinnacle of photographic printmaking.
