Analogue Dog combines a love and affection for four-legged companions with classic black-and-white photography. Silver gelatin portraits are hand-processed and handprinted on the spot, in a unique foldable darkroom.
The term “silver gelatin” or “silver gelatin print” refers to traditional black-and-white photographic printing, or darkroom printing. It implies the use of photographic paper exposed under an enlarger’s light, then developed and fixed in wet photo chemicals. It’s basically vintage-style photography, photographed on special coated paper rather than film. The result is a distinct style of photographic artwork: highly contrasted, Victorian-era, stark black and white imagery.
Each print comes a free high-resolution and web-ready digital file to spread the love on the social media. These works of art are priced at $45 for the smaller 5×7″, and $125 for the 8×10″ print.
In addition to the main offering of photography, visitors can browse through pet apparel, accessories and treats from Vancouver-based retailers. For example, innovative raw and layered artisan treats by Pawsh Chops, comfy and pretty hypoallergenic beds and cushions by Upcycled Canine, as well as Dane & Divas ’ must-have elegant and handcrafted bow ties, collars, leashes and more.
