CVaultsPhoto Lab
Photo Lab

Our photo lab places special emphasis upon manual analogue photo printing, both black-and-white and color (C-print), in large formats (up to 182 mm wide). Alternative technologies are also available to users, including cyanotype, photogram, and ambrotype. The lab has an Canon inkjet printer for digital large-format printing and a light control system which helps to achieve the most accurate colour results. The workshop is also equipped with everything necessary for developing photographic films of any format, as well as scanning and digital processing of files.
