The Dave Butcher Black and White Photo Library contains tens of thousands of images as archivally processed silver gelatine film negatives, mostly medium format 7x6cm and 6x6cm.
Working exclusively in black and white with Mamiya 7 film cameras and Ilford film to produce stunning landscape photographs and striking city shots his work is widely published in books and magazines. He is the author of 6 books, 3 of which are still available through this website, Amazon and any good bookseller. His images can be seen in numerous advertising and PR projects, and Dave’s original black and white pictures are popular with interior designers, businesses and homeowners alike.
The four main galleries show the images alone and orders are then printed by hand before mounting and shipping. Black and white prints available through this website are printed from film negatives by Dave Butcher in a traditional darkroom using silver gelatin paper so these are high quality prints to last a lifetime!
Available Print Sizes have been reduced for each image so that, for most images, there is a small size of 40x30cm or 40x40cm, and a larger size of 60x50cm, 60x40cm or 50x50cm (sizes available are dependent on image format). Also, a small number of images are available in a ‘Letterbox’ format and just one size of 60x25cm. The dimensions refer to the outer dimensions of the mounted print including the window mount. Effectively it’s the frame size needed for the print as supplied. All prints are mounted and have a window mount with borders between 5cm and 7cm depending on format and size.
Larger Print Sizes can also be supplied up to a maximum of 120x120cm and are darkroom prints too, but are not printed by Dave Butcher, and are supplied unmounted in a postal tube, for example images available as 60x40cm prints look great at 100x50cm.
