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 for the first time never before seen colour collotype prints from Masahisa Fukase titled Raven Scenes. Along with our collotype prints and portfolios, we will also present a specially curated selection of works by Saul Leiter, Stephen Gill, Antony Cairns, Kenro Izu and Yamamoto Masao.
