Celebrating Silver

7 Feb-9 Mar 2024

Hamiltons Gallery
London W1K 2EU


Hamiltons Gallery is delighted to present Celebrating Silver. This exhibition brings together a curated selection of the very finest prints by some of photography’s most influential artists. Through photographers such as Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Don McCullin, Hiro, Robert Mapplethorpe and others, the technical mastery of print making is explored. 
Prior to the advent of digital photography, silver had a central role in all photographic printing techniques. Due to its less complex and quicker developmental process, gelatin silver prints gained popularity in the 20th century with commercial and fine art photographers and continue to be revered today for their tonal range and clarity. 
Throughout its history, Hamiltons has championed the artistic possibilities of print making. Celebrating Silvergathers pioneers from 20th century photography, modern masters and contemporary artists, in an exhibition that celebrates the beauty and impact achieved through the gelatin silver medium.
