Continuing our long-standing support of Brighton Photo Fringe, Metro is delighted to be official print sponsor again this year. In addition to supplying a variety of services to photographers across many different events, Metro has produced vinyl prints
using our Direct to Media
printer for Festival signage and outdoor exhibitions.
The Festival take place throughout the month of October with a programme packed with exhibitions, talks, screenings, workshops and parties, offering a city-wide, open-access festival of new photography.
Metro has provided sponsorship to OPEN16 Solo winner Dana Ariel
, for the exhibition of images from her ‘Encountering Perforated Ground
’ project. Metro printed
her stunning images which were taken in Israel and Palestine between 2014 and 2016. Showing landscapes with traces of past activities which overlay and stain the ground, the images tell a story of political erasure and displacement.
Additionally Dana Ariel and Metro Director, Steve Macleod will be taking part in an ‘in conversation’ event, ‘On Printing’
where they will be discussing current printing practice with examples of the multiple ways they both print work.
is a showcase of work from ten of Metro’s own talented staff including printers, technicians, retouchers and sales and marketing staff. Our passion for photography is exposed in this 7-meter wall of work curated by Director and Photographer Steve Macleod, along with some of our top products and services.
