Bayeux Framing Service
Bayeux's in house framing service is expanding and we can now offer bespoke, hand made light boxes as well as the large selection of mouldings and mounts that are already available.
09:00 to 18:00 Monday to Friday
Our Framing Studio has moved to Covent Garden and is now based at 3 Stukeley Street, WC2B 5LB. We are just around the corner from Drury Lane, so if you're in the area, pop in and say hello!
We are also pleased to announce that we have added a new product to our extensive framing range. We are now making beautiful WOODEN light boxes and have to admit that we are pretty chuffed with them.
If you want to see for yourself, we have one on display at Newman Street and Terry will be happy to give you a demo! This particular lightbox is stained dark brown, but the default colour is the lighter wood, shown here in the close up image.
Here is the technical spec:
Made to measure in American White Oak (or any other suitable wood, to order)
Illuminated by daylight LED lamps
Includes a dedicated remote control / dimmer
Clear varnish included as standard but other colours are available to order
Suitable for displaying Duratran prints
Ready to hang
If you want to know more about our lightboxes, or any of our other framing services, please don't hesitate to call, email or drop in to either of our premises and we will be happy to help you.
Changes at Bayeux-MDA
As a result of acquiring the assets of Micheal Dyer Associates, we have recently relocated our Framing and Mounting department, just down the road, to Cleveland Street. This means we have a much larger dedicated space in which to make our bespoke frames and carry out the large scale mounting for our gallery pieces. We will also be making bespoke lightboxes there.
Back at Newman Street, we have moved in our giant enlarger. So we can now hand print traditional C-types up to 9ft x 5ft 6ins and B&W fibre prints up to 8ft x 4ft!
Building work to accommodate the rest of the equipment from Endell Street is continuing, so please bear with us. The new equipment will include a large format inkjet printer which will allow us to print up to 58" wide, depending on the paper type.
We are very excited about all the changes and the range of new products and expertise that we can now offer and hope that you will be too!
Bayeux has acquired the assets of Michael Dyer Associates, the photographic lab that specialised in traditional and digital printing
for photographic artists.
The Company continues to trade in Endell Street WC2 but will be relocated to Bayeux’s Newman Street premises in W1 at the
beginning of September.
The Company will be known as Bayeux-MDA and will retain many of the staff that have formed a bond with photographers and artists over the years.
Landscape Photographer of the Year
Now in its sixth year, the Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards is open for entries and you have until mid-July to upload your pictures for a chance to win £10,000. 'Take a view', the idea of renowned landscape photographer, Charlie Waite, is one of the nation's most exciting photographic awards and the search for the 2012 winner is on.
Entrants have until 15th July to enter the 2012 Awards by submitting their photographs of the British landscape. The competition is open to everyone and you can enter up to 25 photographs across the four categores. There is a prize fund worth £20,000, including £10,00 for the overall winner. There is also a special class for those under 16, so the whole family can get involved.
An exhibition of the winning and commended entries will premiere at the National Theatre in London in late November 2012 and all successful entries will also appear in a stunning book by AA Publishing.
All entries to the award must be uploaded via the competition webiste, www.take-a-view.co.uk. Entry fees apply. Full terms and conditions can be found on the site.
Festival! is currently at the National Theatre until 4th June. All the images were printed and mounted by Bayeux.
From the riotous colour and noise of Rio to the more cerebral rhythms of Hay, festivals offer an escape route from the everyday to the urgent and boisterous celebration of harvests, music, books, tomatoes and bog snorkelling. As we approach a summer of unprecendented festivity, images from the Corbis archive take us into the pop-up worlds of the vibrant, the scared and the very, very odd.
In association with Corbis, the National Theatre's Photographic Images Parner.
Exhibition opening times:
Monday - Saturday from 9.30am - 11pm
Sunday 12pm - 5.30pm (closed 3 June)
Feel Flows, an exhibition by Siobhan Bradshaw, is currently being shown in Bayeux's reception area.
Siobhan is a photographer who lives and works in London. She first discovered her passion for photography whilst studying Fine Art at Central St Martins College. She was living in Soho and remembers "The window of my flat was a perpetual cinema screen, through which I became voyeur."
Siobhan's work is heavily influenced by the strong emotive imagery of old jazz record covers and Film Noir. Returning to Soho for her most recent project, her new body of work draws parallels between photography and jazz in its improvisation, fluidity and flow.
"Jazz to me is a musical expression of subjective individual emotions by particular individuals in their own unique way. Every jazzman feels, sees, and hears everything and everything he was and is becomes the source and object of his music. It is a music purchased with dues of hardship, suffering and pain, optimism and love." Roy DeCavara.
Siobhan's photography has been exhibited at the Jazz Cafe since 2009.
Feel Flows until 20th April 2012.
The Devils exhibition
When Ken Russell died in November 2011 the British film world mourned the passing of one of our most colourful, maverick directors. Now, for the first time ever, The British Film Institute is releasing his controversial film, The Devils (1971), on DVD. This special edition release will not only feature the longest version of the film ever, but will also include a host of new and exciting extra features. The DVD is to be released on 19 March 2012.
To mark this historic occasion, an exhibition of specially selected publicity stills and rare production photographs celebrating the creative talents behind The Devils will be shown the Atrium at BFI Southbank until 21 March 2012. The stills have all been printed by Bayeux.
24:2012 Mayfair falls beneath the spell
24:2012 is the ninth annual show by 24Photography, once again sponsored by Bayeux, residing in Berkeley Square, Mayfair and running for 24 days from 24 February until 19 March.
As the chimes of Big Ben welcomed in 2004 they signalled the start of a photographic project that saw 24 postgraduate photography students, from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, document the first day of the New Year. From the welcoming of the New Year to the end of its first day, these images capture the essence of that day for the photographers involved. But that year was just the beginning. The photographers involved have embarked on a hugely ambitious photographic project that will span a generation.
24 hours. 24 photographers. 24 images. 24 years.
How will the group, the project, the world it documents, change over the next quarter of a century? This elaborate social documentary will record what New Year's Day represents - not only as a one off event - but also as an ongoing and developing catalogue of what the end of one year and beginning of another comes to represent over time.
Dream in Colour - The Art of Stylorouge - An Exhibition
Aubin Gallery are delighted to present 'Dream in Colour', a series of new works and reinterpreted archive imagery by leading London creative studio Stylorouge. The exhibition has been printed and framed at Bayeux and will run 11th January - 3rd February 2012.
This London-based creative consultancy was founded in 1981 by creative director, Rob O'Connor, who has steered Stylorouge through various phases embracing design for print, web and multimedia, photography and video production. The team have created some of the most well regarded imagery for the music and movie industries for over 30 years for the likes of Blur, Morrissey, The Rolling Stones, George Micheal and the now iconic artwork for Trainspotting, amongst many others.
To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Stylorouge have let their creative minds loose on a whole new series of art pieces for a groundbreaking exhibition of personal artisitc work with their whole team entering a process of self-directed artisitc creation specifically for the show. The resulting video installations, assemblages, painting and photography give a unique insight into the concerns and motivations of one of the most progressive and engaging creative studios once freed from commercial constraints. Rather than the usual cohesive collaborative work that the studio produces, this exhibition charts the individual journeys of each of the participants.

Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year 2011 Exhibition at The National Theatre
The fifth annual Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibition is currently showing at The National Theatre on London's South Bank, with over 100 beautiful landscape images printed using the latest Epson inkjet technology. Bayeux again provided the prints for this year's awards and we were impressed once more by the high standard of work on show.
Charlie Waite, one of Britain's best-loved landscape photographers and founder of Take a view said of the exhibition: "When I first walked into the exhibition space this year, my first thought was 'stunning '. The impact of the wonderful photography is undeniable and the way that each image has been printed really shows off the photographic skills of the winners at their best... He continues, "Our wide definition of 'landscape' includes images of people in the landscape, landscape details & urban views and these complement the classic sweeping view, so that there is something of interest for everyone. This, in my view, is a 'must see' exhibition. If you want to be reminded of how awe-inspiring Britain is, come and visit the National Theatre."
The exhibition runs until the 28th January and admission is free. It is once again supported by Epson UK and their Digigraphie prints ensure consistent standards and 'fine art' quality. Bayeux is the only approved Digigraphie printer in the UK.
