We are delighted to announce that Metro Imaging, one of the UK’s longest running Photographic Lab, has agreed to support First Women by printing the Exhibition Materials for the First Women Project. The partnership was formed after Metro Imaging featured the project in 2014 following a creative consultation to review the First Women Portfolio.
Anita has been a Metro customer for over 30 years and was keen to seek advice on the project from London’s top professional photographic lab because “their dedicated team of experts have a huge range of industry experience and they clearly love what they do, which is why the quality is so good – I’ve come to rely on them” Metro’s Steve Macleod explained, “This is a unique opportunity to not only work with an established photographer, but to support a long standing customer, document and rediscover archive photographic material such as ‘Visible Girls’ that will inspire future generations”
“Cosmic are proud to support the first women project as a fantastic way of showcasing the strong work that women contribute to the use of technology. Through our LOVE Digital training project we have trained many women who are running businesses to utilise digital technology better and this is another way in which we can nurture that development.”
The Rt Honorable Betty Boothroyd has been a supporter of the project from the start, agreeing to be Patron at her first sitting for her First Woman Portrait. She has been a great source of inspiration and support to Anita throughout the project.
