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.

Sometimes we get to print our own work!

Thank you Jennifer Kahrs over at Shadowbox Shop for this delicious framing on my Edison Light Bulb piece. Cherry stock splined with walnut and glazed with white water museum glass. Paper: Innova FibaPrint Warm Cotton Gloss 335gsm.

This piece is from a body of work I made some years back called Bay 1, Bay 10, Shelf C which represents one shelf of collections storage at the Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI). I spent a year researching and photographing for this project.  Inside the museum archives I discovered the story of a window display artist who had worked for Baltimore Gas and Electric for over 30 years before donating the collection to the BMI.  The collector had voluntarily salvaged these objects along with hundreds of books documenting the appliances beginning with electric tests circa 1920. My installation Bay 1, Bin 10, Shelf C featured 45 photographs, one vitrine containing a card catalog of over 1300 yellow 3” x 5 “ cards (made by the collector) and a continuous video loop of the card catalog.  One 50” x 30” color photograph (of the actual shelf in the BMI warehouse) titled Bay 1, Bin 10, Shelf C at the entrance of the installation.  This photograph includes the 21 boxes which hold the appliances.  Selections of the work can be seen on my site: Feel free to contact me of you are interested in seeing the entire project.

Proud to have pared with ShadowBox Shop Framing in Brooklyn on this production for artist Joshua Korenblat. To reproduce Joshua’s drawings with weight and warmth we printed on Hahnemühle Bamboo 290 (90% bamboo fibers and 10% cotton) 280gsm (matte). The show features drawings of returning Vets at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. This important project is currently on view in DC at The Pepco Edison Place Gallery in D.C. Watch NYTimes Video and meet the Vets and see artists in action.

Happy to report that all of the prints we had the pleasure of working on for the Art From the Heart exhibition (July 28th, Gowanus Loft, Brooklyn) have been delivered! We printed for over 24 artists for the show using variety of archival papers. Curator Jennifer Kahrs (Shadowbox Shop) worked closely with many of the individual artists (and FIS) making recommendations on paper and dimension to best suit the work. Guiding artists through paper choices and the right media for their individual work is one of our favorite things to accomplish over here at Fiber Ink Studio. I thought we might share a few of the prints we are so proud of.  All of these prints and many more will be available for viewing and purchasing at the loft on Saturday night.

First round of proofs!










Beautiful mounting to white sintra care of Shadow Box Shop production team!

Everybody Needs Someone, Aging Out of Foster Care Project is an important work by Salaam Garage  (advocacy journalism, citizen journalism, humanitarian media, or documentary film and photography. Members create stories to help cause positive social change by helping the small organizations who are solving the world’s biggest problems and injustices.  We (FIS) are so proud to be printing for the June 23rd Museum Exhibition at the Long Island Children’s Museum (LICM). From Salaam Garage: Removed from their birth parents for abuse, neglect or abandonment, foster kids typically grow up in various foster families and group homes.  Those homes may last for as little as a few days or as long as a few years, but they rarely provide enough stability to ground kids with the education and skills they need to start out on their own.
When these children turn 21, they officially “age out” of foster care. That means they’re no longer entitled even to minimum room and board from the foster care system. All of a sudden, they have to fend for themselves. Nationwide, about 20,000 of the 542,000 children in foster care “age out” each year. Five percent of them – about 1,100 young adults – are left on their own in the New York City area.

This project will culminate in a book, a website, an exhibition and family workshops. For more information and to give (and receive some killer thank you gifts)  please visit the KICK STARTER page!

And please spread the word!

For this project we will be printing on Moab Lasal Photo Matte 230 gsm and Tyvek for ink jet. We are partnering up with Shadowbox Shop (SBX) framing in Brooklyn to deliver some beautiful prints and slick mounts from SBX. Love the love!
