Arthur Wainwright (1911 - 1998) was an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and a member of Coventry Photographic Society from the 1950’s. He was generally regarded as a top-class printer and he had prints accepted in many national and international exhibitions. He was skilled in monochrome and colour printing and he developed a unique style of printing using lith masks. His enlarger was bolted to a bench and he devised his own system of registration which enabled him to use his masks with extreme precision.
It should be remembered that Arthur’s era was “pre-digital” and yet the results he achieved would have severely challenged the best of today’s photoshop users.
