A big thanks goes to the team at Bayeux Ltd (Terry, Nick, Julie, Iris, Martin and Rob) for their professional excellence in producing the archival Lightjet C-Type prints* for my Pixies retrospective at Snap Galleries new flagship premises in the heart of Piccadilly London. You can find them at 78 Newman Street London W1T 3EP Tel: 020 7436 1066. Bayeux also offer drum scanning facilities as well as a host of archival papers and printing output options. Special thanks to Nick B for his patience in working with my images. They also offered me a free window display whilst the show is on! A hearty thanks to Miguel at Genesis who drum scanned Nimrod’s Son and Surfer Rosa’s #1-3 last year for me.
*A note on Lightjets C-Type prints:
Silver-halide photographic paper is fixed on an internal drum, where three digitally controlled lasers simultaneously expose the photo-sensitive paper (or back-lit transparency medium) with red, green, and blue light. The print is then processed using traditional photochemical means. After which, the photographic print is handled just as any other photo-print. LightJet is a true photographic continuous tone process. Most deliver a final product printed on Fujifilm Crystal Archive or Kodak Endura paper in sizes up to at least 4×10 feet . Other Silver-Halide based materials can be printed on laser driven devices such as the LightJet. (Info courtesy of Wikipedia ).
