B&W Photography: Constant Image Culture


The triumph of black-and-white photography is also a piece of TETENAL's history. Today, in the era of analogue, digital, colorful and moving images, b&w photography still has the undisputed status of one of the leading art and documentation media in our culture.

Monochrome analog photography has lost nothing of its fascination and creative potential even in the digital age. AS one of the few companies in the world, TETENAL continues to conduct research and development work in the field of black and white photography. TETENAL still offers several B/W products for the art and professional photographer, but also for the ambitious and retro-loving photographer.

A complete product range with:

  • b&w film developer
  • b&w paper developer
  • b&w fixer and
  • b&w processing aids

is available to the user for optimal solutions for all areas of shell and can processing. More than 170 years of experience in the b&w sector and at the same time continuous development work have brought TETENAL a decisive competence advantage. Black and white photography thus remains a timeless and lively art form of the 21st century.
