Description "I shoot on a large format camera (8x10 & 4x5 film) and this can bring a heightened sense of reality to the images. This becomes even more apparent when printed large scale for exhibition. The details are clearer and become more important. Large Format is the way I have always worked. It involves thinking more about what you are about to shoot and then trusting your instinct. With no Polaroid or instant digital image to work with, the pre planning and thought leading up to the shoot is transmitted to the first shot. Shooting in this way can produce a staged image, however in the book "Teenage Pre-occupation" it is the subject matter that gives the resulting images a more naturalistic quality, and ultimately the impression of social documentation."

Carbro Process Printing:

Carbro (carbon-bromide) printing is a process in which contact with a conventional silver bromide paper print, rather than exposure to light, is used to selectively harden the gelatin. A wide variety of colored pigments can be used instead of carbon black.

The process can produce images of very high quality which are exceptionally resistant to fading and other deterioration.

**David Stewart no longer practices Carbro printing, therefore making this a rare collection.
