About Christopher Brenton West Daguerreotypes
I am an artist who makes Daguerreotype photographic images. These images are made on silver plates in a similar manner to the French inventor Louis Daguerre, whose process started the photography ball rolling in 1839. Many , many months of trial and error, failure and finally success puts me in a position to (nearly) control the method ! I now make limited edition copies of these images as an affordable alternative to the original silver plates. These images are digital 'C' type prints chemically created (As opposed to inkjet prints). Their longevity should be second to none.The four images offered are editions of the original plates that were on display at the London Photo Art Fair in 2013.
