Shot at Dawn is a series by British photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews that focuses on the sites at which soldiers from the British, French and Belgian armies were executed for cowardice and desertion during the First World War.

We worked on Lambda C-type prints and Bespoke Frames for the series, which premiered at Tate Modern in London and Stills: Scotland’s Centre for Photography in Edinburgh in November 2014 and will be shown at The IMMA until 7 February. Following this, the exhibition will travel to Ivorypress in Madrid in 2016.

Genesis Imaging, ‘Innovation at the Highest Quality”, 2008, The British Journal of Photography (November 2015).

This month in The British Journal of Photography​, we’re looking back to 2008…

Alongside some of the perhaps more obscure innovations of 2008 (sunscreen for plants?), Glass Face Mounting was introduced to our already extensive printing and finishing services. Alongside this completely unique service, Perspex Face Mounting was added, providing a more lightweight mounting option with the same flawless high-gloss finish.

Learn more and see some of our other innovations.
