For nature photographer and environmental activist Alfie Bowen, the world was a scary place when he was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder at a young age. Despite the many challenges he faced throughout his life, he discovered his passion for animals and photography and launched his first signed limited edition collection with Castle Fine Art in 2021; discover the collection here).
This second collection accompanies the release of his own book where he discusses how his autism has helped him in his career and features foreword by world-renowned naturalist, photographer and TV presenter Chris Packham. Printed via c-type and silver gelatin onto resin coated paper and framed in charcoal pine and spruce wood to achieve the highest possible quality, this visually stunning and emotionally moving collection will add a magical touch of the animal world to your home.
Developed in the 19th century, silver gelatin prints are one of the oldest and most effective photography printing techniques used across history and the world. The intricate details of Alfie's black and white photographs are perfectly captured and translated from the his camera to paper via this technique. The luxurious print allows the whites to be crispier and the blacks darker, enhancing the entire appearance of the photograph greater than any other standard print would allow. On the other hand, referring to a print made from a colour negative, the 'C-Type print' is a high quality photograph with gorgeous colour rendition, sharpness and a smooth tone. Before the digital age it was the most popular form colour photography printing but is still viewed, by established photographers, as more prestigious and higher quality than any digital version. Combined with bespoke black pine and spruce frames, these limited edition photographs are truly works of art.
