All the photographs on this website are available for sale.

Traditional printing is a fine art, unlike digital prints that can be run off by the hundreds, each darkroom print is unique.
You are purchasing a photograph that has been entirely produced by hand, by the photographer. I have over 25 years of experience in the darkroom, learning to get the very best print possible from a traditional film negative.

“Walter Rothwell's silver gelatin prints have to be seen in person to see the perfect example of quality printing with all its deep blacks & variety of tones.” Laura Noble, LA Noble Photographers Gallery.

Each photo is hand printed by me in a traditional darkroom on Ilford 12x16 RC paper, archively washed and spotted.Signed in pencil on the back, the print is placed in a sheet of acid free tissue paper and sent in a purpose made print box. A pair of print handling cotton gloves are included.
