Fitzalan Square, Sheffield in 1983 - limited edition print by Chris James Photography

Fitzalan Square, Sheffield 1983 – Limited Edition Print

This is a traditional black and white photographic print which I am selling as part of a limited edition of only 50 copies. It shows the old telephone boxes next to the Post Office in Fitzalan Square in Sheffield on a murky day in October 1983, with Hyde Park Flats in the distance.

This is a completely traditional (analogue) photographic print. It was shot on 35mm Ilford Pan F black and white film, which I processed myself. It was then hand-printed by me on Agfa Record Rapid fibre-based paper for archival permanence. The print has a natural warm tone from the chloro-bromide paper, which I feel suits the subject matter.

Each print measures 16″x12″ including borders (the actual image area is approx. 15½”x11″), and each one is signed and numbered by myself.

Copies cost £75.00 each (including postage within the UK). Please contact me to order a copy.

The only thing digital about this image is the version you are looking at on your screen. I have scanned  the original negative and edited it to match the print as closely as possible. However, there will inevitably be slight differences between the print and what you see on your screen – particularly if you have not calibrated your monitor. By default, computer monitors and other screens are usually too blue in colour, and too bright for accurately viewing images. For the closest match possible, you should view this image on a screen whose temperature has been calibrated to 6500ºK, luminance to 120cd/m² and a gamma of 2.2.
