SEPIA COLLECTION

Some early 35mm, negative work of Cornwall by Mark Blezard.

One of my first projects in the late '80s was to record Cornwall and reproduce in sepia. These retro pictures were shot in black & white 35 film negative, using my Canon A1, and then hand-printed before bleaching and re-toning as sepia. A vignette was adding during exposure in the darkroom. As it transpired, the collection became a best seller and sold throughout Cornish galleries and beyond. The success led to dozens of darkroom hours each week!
