In our digital world of 'instant everything' which is mostly mass produced, Paul Cooklin is drawn to analogue film and traditional darkroom printing. His preference for film over digital derives from the nostalgic and timeless 'look' of black and white film, with it's tonal qualities and grain. He is also drawn to the rules of the negative and the traditional printing methods which he finds more rewarding due to the hands-on approach needed to make an individual silver gelatin print.
Cooklin's body of work consists of an eclectic collection of prints, spanning various photographic genres which have featured in numerous publications including TIME magazine, Italian Vogue and is represented by the Saatchi Art gallery.
Exclusive to Not On The High Street, a collection of images shot on 35mm and medium format film, available as signed Giclée reproduction prints on Hahnemühle’s Photo Rag art paper which include signed provenance certificates.
