As main partners and official print sponsors of Brighton Photo Fringe 2018, Metroprint were delighted to be invited to present a show as part of the festival, showcasing a mix of artwork from our talented members of staff, as well as a selection our Metro Imaging Mentorship winners.
In 2005 Metro Imaging established a Mentorship platform to support photographers and graduates making the transition out of education or a self-taught background. The programme has gone on to be highly regarded in the industry as a vital stepping-stone into the creative industries, with notable mentees such as Felicity Hammond, Carl Bigmore, and Alexander Mourant.
This year, Metro invited LCC graduates Sophie Hambling & Shahram Saadat to curate the exhibition of Mentors & Mentees. Artefact is a mixed collection of work by current Mentorship Winners: Polly Evans, Emily Marshall, Cole Quirke, Scarlett Platel, Zoë Sim, and Nathaniel White, along with pieces by Metro’s own team: David Brazier, Nick Holyman, Patrick Kelly, Vanessa Short and Ciarán Woolcombe, all of which will be on show throughout the festival at Phoenix Brighton.
The varied group exhibition includes a mix of media, such as Black & White Hand Prints, Digital C-type printing on a range of papers, moving image, collage, Photogravures, and Bespoke Mounting & Framing.

Prints ready for collection from 4 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We are able to produce bigger and better C-Type photo prints than anywhere else in the UK. Our photo prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches (3m x 1.8m) in size, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.
While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.
We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.
After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.
When ordering online, we offer a limited range of classic photo frames, in three finishes: white photo frame, smooth black photo frame or a solid light oak frame. Alternately, just order your prints online to take advantage of our great value online ordering system, then contact us to discuss alternate framing styles and our range of thousands of frame mouldings.
