Edition Argentum is a gallery for analogue photography art editions.

 

Its focus lies on classic and contemporary artists, whose pictures are photographed on film and handprinted on classic silvergelatin papers or use alternative photographic processes, such as cyanotypes or tintypes.

Also modern hybrid techniques, using digital printed negatives as templates for alternative photographic processes or making handmade analogue prints from digital pictures recorded on film can be used, as long as the final artwork is the result of a classic analogue darkroom process. 

 

Where possibe especially young and striving artists, actively working with analogue photograpic materials will be represented to showcase their work to interested collectors.

 

The use of analogue photographic processes is not understood as an form of art in itself but as a deliberate choice of medium which, in its craftsmanship, is an important part and influence in the creative process.
