Limited edition colour collotype print by Antony Cairns
About the Artist
Antony Cairns’ (b. 1980) limited edition collotype prints of his LDN EI series presents images of his city of birth. Born in London and traditionally trained as a photographer at the London College of Printing, his photographic practice has remained rooted in chemical-based techniques, often experimenting with forgotten or discarded methods. In 2015 Cairns was the recipient of the 2015 Hariban Award Grand Prize and exhibited as part of the 2016 Kyotogra- phie International Photography Festival.
Antony Cairns’s new limited edition collotype print presents the most recent work of the artist’s to be printed in collotype by the Benrido artisans. Created from his long-term project of photographing London by night, Antony Cairn’s IBM_LDN4_20, utilises redundant IBM computer punch cards to print his photographs digitally, later assembling them to create a composite image. A continuation on the artists fascination and obsession of photography’s endless link to photography, IBM_LDN4_20 is both an individual and visually captivating study of his city, London.
