Baby Feet by Roger Bamber

Baby feet. The Guardian. 18 February 1993.

Baby J: On February 9 at Kings College Hospital, London,

To Anna and an unknown father (believed to have fair skin and blond hair),

A much loved son.

The story was that this child was one of the first of what is now a common practice – a single mother choosing to use an anonymous sperm donor in order to start her own family.

The pioneering mother chose not to be identified in any way, as in 1993 the practice still carried a considerable stigma. To portray the caring, sharing single mother Anna and her week old son ‘J’, I decided to hide both their identities by just showing the mum’s hands holding the baby’s feet.

    At Fleet Street's Finest we sell C-Type prints and Alumini ChromaLuxe. Digital C-Type photographic prints use similar exposure techniques to 'dark room' analogue developing techniques but without the need for a negative.

    Equally the enlarging, focusing and exposure to the paper is managed by a computer using lasers or LEDs rather than a bulb. The following process is still very much the same with the paper being processed in chemical developer, followed by a bleech fix before a wash to remove the processing chemicals.

    A C-Type print very much has its origins in traditional photographic processes but is originated from a digital file rather than a negative. Though, obviously, some of our vintage images are from scans of negatives.
