    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.

About Brian Harris

Brian Harris has been an editorial, news and current affairs photographer for more than 47 years. Fascinated in his teens by the alchemy of the darkroom in the 1960s Brian started to combine his school work with photographing weddings and football matches in his native Essex. A job as a runner at the Fox Photos agency at the age of sixteen set Brian on the path that would shape his life.

In the 1970s Brian worked in the heart of London’s Fleet Street, freelancing for The Sun, The Times, News of the World, the BBC and United Press International, covering everything from IRA bombings to celebrity news, until joining The Times as its youngest ever staff photographer aged twenty-five. When The Independent launched in 1986, Brian became its first staff photographer, playing a key role in forming the renowned Indy style of intelligent editorial photography. In his fourteen years at The Independent Brian travelled the world to cover the stories that defined the era.

Berlin 12 November 1989.

Looking from the east towards the west. An East Berliner sits astride the wall playing ‘Misty’ by Erroll Garner on his saxophone.

The sound reverberating around the quiet streets on the first Sunday after the fall of the wall. The early morning winter sun was up taking away the chill of the night. A beautiful morning, remembered 20 years later.

Since going freelance in 1999, Brian has staged several solo exhibitions, notably at Photofusion Photography Centre, and has contributed to exhibitions organised by the British Press Photographers’ Association. In 2006-7 he collaborated with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on Remembered, a major illustrated book of his photographs and series of international touring exhibitions chronicling the CWGC’s work caring for the graves of over 1.7 million Commonwealth war dead.

The BBC has made three short documentaries about his working methods and he has debated live on Radio 4’s The Moral Maze: ‘An experience more terrifying than walking through a minefield on the Falkland Islands.’

Brian lives with his partner Nikki near Cambridge in East Anglia and contribute generic imagery to various agencies as well as generating original photographic essays such as his recent coverage of the First World War battlefield in Europe to coincide with the 100th anniversary of WWI-1914-1918.

Brian has recently published ‘…and then the Prime Minister hit me…’ a 320 page hard back book of images and essays covering his life’s work. The book has been edited, designed, printed and bound in England and is now available in a standard version or the slipcased signed and numbered limited edition of 200 copies at:

About Brian Harris

Brian Harris grew up in London but now lives near Cambridge in England. He has worked as a staff photographer on The Times of London and was appointed chief photographer of the Independent newspaper when it launched in 1986.

He photographed the end of the civil war in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), the aftermath of the Falklands war and the famine in Ethiopia and the Sudan. He spent 18 months in Eastern Europe documenting the collapse of communism and the fall of the wall in Berlin in 1989. He has covered four Presidential campaigns in the United States and reported on the first elections in Nepal and the death of Rajiv Ghandi in India. Brian has also covered political change in France, Germany and Italy as well as the first stirrings of unrest in Serbia and Kosovo.

In 2009, Brian was asked by Intelligent Life Magazine to return to Berlin to photograph the changes in that city 20 years after the fall of the wall, resulting in a 12 page photo-essay. See the entire edit.

Waterloo Bridge by Bo Lutoslawski

 

Waterloo Bridge is bridge crossing the River Thames in London, between Blackfriars Bridge and Hungerford Bridge, named after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. This is a second bridge of this name: the first Waterloo Bridge was dismantled as it became unstable and the current Waterloo Bridge was opened in 1945.

I often worked for near-by the South Bank Centre as a free-lance photographer, had a few exhibitions there and came to many concerts at the Royal Festival Hall and plays at the National Theatre, which is close-by.

I loved walking across this bridge and stopped many times to admire the richness of townscape around me: Westminster, the South Bank, London Eye, the City of London and Canary Wharf further away. The ambience of that view changed at various times of the day and night, coloured by an unpredictability of weather and traffic.

This portrait of a dancer is my homage to the Waterloo Bridge, a passage from South to the North, from vibrant, modern culture to established theatres of Strand and beyond
