Luscious and incredible scanner images by Bruce Checefsky (printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm) are currently on view at the Akron Art Museum. SuperNatural: Landscapes by Bruce Checefsky and Barry Underwood. On view until March 4, 2012.

New York photographer and filmmaker Harvey Wang will be exhibiting at the NYC Tenement Museum at Orchard Street, opening reception Nov. 3rd. For Harvey we made high res scans and outputted to digital on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm. It was a joy to see Harvey’s portraits of Chinatown transform from silver gelatin prints to large pigment prints. We cannot wait to see the new space at the Tenement Museum and more of Harvey’s NYC archive.

From Italian Academy press release: Using a plastic camera from the 1960s, Amy Bedik photographs sculpture and landscape, creating images of startling intensity and sophistication.  In Figure and Ground, she exhibits work made in Italy, Turkey, and New York.  And from Russell Hart: If the shapeliness of Bedik’s subjects makes her viewer cognizant of their creators’ tools—chisel or clippers, wind or water—the visual qualities of her photographs raise the question of what was used to make them. Her perfectly named Diana, an inexpensive plastic camera with a crude plastic lens, produces images that are less sharp than those from a “serious” camera and that become softer still, and also darker, toward the edges. “It would certainly be easier to work with a conventional camera,” Bedik says. “The Diana is unreliable at best, but the way it renders subjects is the closest I’ve come to replicating the way I see.” In fact, Bedik insists that the images no longer appear distorted to her.

We are thrilled to have worked with Amy over the past two years. Amy’s beautiful and transformative work is shot with a toy Diana camera, scanned and outputted to pigment prints – printed on Hahnemühle Bamboo 290 (90% bamboo fibers and 10% cotton) 280gsm. And best of all – we will be at the opening!

Opening Reception: Tuesday, October 18, 2011

6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Review of show by the Columbia Spectator

From MICA:
The exhibition will showcase more than 35 images made by DeLuise with an 8×10 large format camera while in India, Nepal, Italy and Bhutan. From the start, travel has been integral to DeLuise’s creative process. Throughout her career, DeLuise has traveled to India and Nepal on a Guggenheim Fellowship, to Italy both to study and teach, and to Bhutan on a recent sabbatical. Although the destinations have varied, DeLuise has been moving in the same direction, desiring to roam toward the unknown and bowing to her subject through the lens of her camera. In the making, printing and exhibiting of her photographs, DeLuise’s journey reflects what Nietzsche called “a long obedience in the same direction.”

We were thrilled to have worked with Regina by drum scanning her 8″ x 10″ negatives and producing luscious pigment prints (Ilford  Galerie Gold Fiber Silk 310gsm) for this show.  At MICA both palladium prints and pigment prints will be on view. Regina traditionally creates gorgeous palladium prints so this was quite a joy for us to be trusted through this process from film to digital output.  Quietly thoughtful photographs of extraordinary landscapes, portraits and sublime moments will be on view at MICA from Oct 21st to November 13th. See more of her work here.

Bruce Nelson in Chicago

Posted 08/29/11

The work of Bruce Nelson offers a personal look at the Northwoods of Wisconsin. We have had the pleasure of printing for Bruce (despite the distance between us) and have enjoyed “escaping” the studio while looking at his work. For these images Hahnemühle Photo rag (matte) 308gsm and Crane Museo Silver Rag 300gsm were selected. Bruce’s use of deep tonal range including full blacks make these landscapes especially beautiful works. To see more of Bruce’s work visit Lake Effect Gallery. His work will be on exhibition in Chicago in October 2011. Details coming soon.

Super excited to share this link with you.  Lesly was recently interviewed by Cubie King and Carlos H. Martinelli for a CNN piece Film -Not Dead Yet – a beautiful love letter to analog photography. Honored to be part of this.

During a recent sabbatical in Kingdom of Bhutan Regina DeLuise created a sublime body of work using her 8 x 10 film camera.  We were thrilled to work with Regina by drum scanning her 8″ x 10″ negatives and producing luscious pigment prints for this show.  Regina traditionally creates gorgeous palladium prints so this was quite a joy for us.  Quietly thoughtful photographs of this extraordinary landscape and its people will be on view at Southern Vermont Art Center, opening July 23rd, 2011.
