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 the only producer of colour collotypes today having built a distinctive legacy since its establishment. Benrido has 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.
For Photo London 2018, Benrido will present the first colour editioned work by Masahisa Fukase titled Raven Scenes and new work by Thomas Demand titled Portal. We will also present the first European viewing of Stephen Gill's Collotype Portfolio from his most recent body of work Night Procession along with a specially curated selection of works by Saul Leiter, Antony Cairns, Kenro Izu and Yamamoto Masao.
