Fiber Ink Studio client Amy Bedik explores the lonely places of her childhood in Boaat Press (an online journal of poetry and photography). We have been working with Amy for several years as her scanning, retouching and print house. So pleased to see this work introduced here.

Her statement:

A Lonely Place is an ongoing exploration of the places where I spent my childhood. The three locations, a suburban New York town, a rural town in the Catskill Mountains of New York State, and a neighborhood in Queens, were, in my recollection, isolated and lonely places in which to live, and I was curious to see how they had evolved over the many years I spent away. It’s been interesting to see how some things have changed — trees now dwarf houses, buildings have collapsed — but the atmosphere of melancholy and isolation has remained curiously the same. While the images are records of particular places, they are also meant to suggest the dislocation and isolation one might feel in an environment that has evolved without a central plan that takes into account human needs and desires.

More of Amy’s work can be found here.

Prints of her work can be collected in our print shop. All work printed on Hahnemühle Bamboo 290 (90% bamboo fibers and 10% cotton) 280gsm (matte), with HDR inks.

Gorgeous work printed for artist Teresa LoJacono on Cranes Museo Max paper.

From CCNY:

Teresa LoJacono’s images have a casual intimacy about them with a counter weight of psychological content. Each image hints at a confessional moment captured in the quiet solitude of the artist’s mind. Often turning the camera on herself the sense of loss is palpable – loss of youth, loss of loved ones, loss of connection to the broader world… Her images indicate both an ongoing questioning of self but simultaneously the self’s undoing. This de-centered position from which LoJacono draws inspiration generates images that appear like scenes in a dream, documented with a degree of emotional detachment.

Baxter St at CCNY presents The Three Traumas a group show curated by Jorge Alberto Perez presenting works by Anne Berry, Teresa LoJacono, and R. Hardwick Weston. 

In Specters of Marx, Jacques Derrida returns to Freud’s concept of the three traumas inflicted on human narcissism that continue to haunt modern subjectivity, the three intellectual revolutions that have de-centered the ego: the cosmological trauma (the Copernican subject no longer stands at the center of the universe; the biological trauma (the Darwinian subject is no longer at the apex of evolution); and the psychological trauma (the Freudian subject possesses an unconscious and is no longer master even of himself). For Derrida, Marxism not only completes the dismantling of anthropocentrism, but combines all three traumas to deal a final blow to human narcissism. 
The specter of the three traumas haunts the work of the three artists presented in the show, each of which reflects one or more of the narcissistic wounds that decenter modern subjectivity.

This exhibition blends Susan’s iconic silver gelatin prints with our pigment prints.  Working from Imacon scans of Susan’s 35mm film we printed on Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper 325gsm. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of this process.  Exhibition runs through November 30th at Galerie Hug.

From Susan’s Tumblr page:

“In 1975, nearly thirty-five years ago, I was riding a bicycle through my neighborhood in Little Italy when suddenly a blast of light flashed into my eyes, blinding me for a moment. Its source was a group of girls fooling around with a mirror trying to reflect the sun on my face. That was the day I met the Prince Street Girls, the name I gave the group that hung out on the nearby corner almost every day. The girls were from small Italian-American families and they were almost all related. I was the stranger who didn’t belong. Little Italy was mostly for Italians then.

The project Prince Street Girls began as a series of incidental encounters. They’d see me coming and call out, “Take a picture! Take a picture!” At the beginning I was making pictures just to share with them. If we met in the market or at the pizza parlor, they would reluctantly introduce me to their parents but I was never invited into any of their homes. I was their secret friend, and my loft became a kind of hideaway when they dared to cross the street, which their parents had forbidden.”

Project Amelia is an all-volunteer effort organized by friends and family of 28-year-old freelance photographer, Amelia Coffaro. Amelia was diagnosed in February 2013 with Stage 3b Inflammatory Breast Cancer. There is no history of breast cancer in her family and the diagnosis was completely unforeseen.

Like many young, creative professionals, Amelia is currently uninsured, though she had applied for insurance just prior to receiving her diagnosis and continues to try and be approved for coverage. Because of the aggressive nature of her cancer, however, doctors insisted she begin treatment right away. On February 14, 2013, Valentine’s Day, Amelia began chemotherapy. She is currently scheduled for a total of 80 weeks of chemo in addition to various other prescribed procedures including radiation, surgery, and drug therapy.

Project Amelia is thrilled to announce that beginning today, photographs (donated by an exceptional group of award-winning artists) will be made available to donors who give $125 or more. With this donation (amount includes shipping and handling), you will receive an 11″ x 14″* pigment print on exhibition fiber paper printed with archival HDR inks. The photographs are part of an edition of 10, printed for Project Amelia. Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity and will be printed by us at Fiber Ink Studio.

Visit our GiveForward site at between the hours of 10am and 11:59pm EST Monday through Saturday, beginning today, July 1st. Each day, you will see which artist’s work is available. If you would like that print, please make your donation and make a note with the artist’s name. Please MAKE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL so that we can contact you for shipping information. Only 10 prints will be available, so be sure to make your donation early on, as we anticipate them going quickly. Once we have ‘sold out’, we will put up a notice on our GiveForward site and via our Facebook and Twitter (@projectamelia), so stay tuned. For the complete list of artists, please visit:

And, as always, all of the funds will be going to help off-set the costs of Amelia’s medical bills.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at or

Curated by Hank Willis Thomas and Natasha L. Logan, White Boys charts the ways artists are aestheticizing white, male identity in the United States today. Privilege, invisibility, fear, anxiety, purity, emptiness, cowardice–whiteness and masculinity conjure an array of competing associations, emotions and imagery. Taken together, they present a perspective paradoxically ever-present and ever-absent: white is both the sum of all colors and no color at all. But how have whiteness and masculinity ‘evolved’ as relational constructs vis-a-vis blackness, femininity, and sexuality, modes of otherness that have often been scrutinized and alienated? Where are these terms’ entrenchments, and where do they become more pliant? Through photography, video, painting, printmaking and sculpture, the ‘white’ and ‘non-white’ artists of White Boys variously imagine male whiteness within this broader network of racial and sexual tropes and identities, marking seeming commonalities and more subtle gradations.  March 22 – May 3rd, 2013

One of our favorite clients has made a new film. We cannot wait to see this!

Harvey Wang Lecture: For my artist lecture at CAP, I will discuss and share segments from my current film project, From Darkroom to Daylight, about the transition in photography from chemical to digital processes. For the film, I’ve had conversations with over 40 photographers and others, including Sally Mann, David Goldblatt, Gregory Crewdson, George Tice, Elliot Erwitt, Taryn Simon, Jerome Liebling, Susan Meiseles, Platon and Alex Webb. I’ve visited the Ilford factory in England to talk to their chairman about film production, and I’ve interviewed Steven Sasson, who invented the digital camera while at Kodak, as well as Thomas Knoll who created Photoshop, the image manipulation application sold by Adobe

Project Amelia

Posted 02/22/13






We are super excited to be a part of Project Amelia.

Thanks to Resource Magazine:

Two weeks ago, twenty-eight year old, Brooklyn-based photographer Amelia Coffaro was diagnosed with stage III inflammatory breast cancer.  Starting her chemotherapy on Valentine’s Day, Coffaro and her family faced another daunting challenge as the realization that she had no health insurance set in.  Coffaro, who is described by (Stephen) Mallon to be a “loving, caring, talented young photographer,” has “spent a great deal of time taking care of the photography community and volunteering for numerous humanitarian projects. Project Amelia was formed by many of the same professionals and friends that she has helped, interned with, and volunteered for in the past.” When the group found out the shocking news of Coffaro’s diagnosis and financial situation, Mallon says they immediately thought, “We got to get on this.” The project was launched on the same day as her first chemotherapy treatment.

Our co sponsors (so far) are  Shadowbox Shop, B&H  and Project Amelia has already raised $22,000 in a little over a week, and we aim to reach $100,000 by May 1st.

SBX framing. The best.

Posted 02/21/13


































Look what I have. A gorgeous new framed piece to add to our personal collection. For Andrew’s darkroom print by photographer Tom Baird it had to be special.

I described what I wanted to Jennifer over at Shadowbox Shop in Brooklyn: warm but not too warm, masculine but not black, traditional but not a snooze.

What I received is spectacular. Maple, hand splined and finished in Van Dyke brown and an 8 ply cotton rag mat. Perfection.
