Founded in 1887, Benrido brings over a century of experience to image-making. Specialising in collotype, a printing process developed in France in 1855, Benrido remains as one of only a few producers of collotype today having built a distinctive legacy in printmaking since its establishment. Along with papermakers and bookbinders, the Benrido craftsmen have upheld a tradition of superior Kyoto artisanship for more than a century, preserving thousands of Japanese national treasures, cultural artefacts and creating contemporary works of art.

During Photo London, Benrido will showcase a new limited edition collotype box featuring twentieth-century Japanese photographers from the Provoke movement including works by Daido Moriyama, Takuma Nakahira and Yutaka Takanashi, collotype prints from Shoji Ueda’s 'Sand Dune' series, as well as a brand new collotype portfolio of Masao Yamamoto.
