Launching this September, we are thrilled to announce our in-house solo show: Marc Vallée: London & Paris 2011-2018.
Marc Vallée (b.1968) is a London-based documentary photographer whose work focuses on contemporary youth culture within the context of the neoliberal city. Marc’s work has been published and exhibited worldwide, while Tate Britain, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Museum of London and the Martin Parr Collection all hold his zines and photobooks in their collections. The Museum of London also purchased a selection of Marc’s prints, which are currently on show as part of the London Nights exhibition.
At Metro we’ve worked closely with Marc over the last few years, with London & Paris 2011-2018 culminating throughout the last few months, bringing together his vast anthology of work. Images from projects such Writers, Number Six, Vandals and the City, The Graffiti Trucks of Paris and The Graffiti Trucks of London will be shown collectively for the first time.
Curated by Director Steve Macleod, the exhibition is to be held within Metro Imaging’s Front of House, running from September 14th until December 21st, with the Private View being held Wednesday September 12th and will include B&W Digital Fibre-based Prints inBespoke Frames, Direct to Media Printing on Brushed Dibond & Adhesive Vinyl.

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.
