Screen Shot 2013-03-18 at 4.00.26 PMLate in February a launch party was held in New York for new ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Fine Art papers that were introduced in the US on March 1, 2013. It was a gala affair that was an “who’s who” of photographers. They all feasted their eyes on beautiful portraits by Gregory Heisler from his forthcoming book “Gregory Heisler: 50 Portraits.”

Check out what photographers had to say about Gregory Heisler’s 50 Portraits on ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Fine Art papers in this short video.

This was Gregory Heisler’s very first showing of color and black and white prints. The show was made up of gorgeous portraits of celebrities, politicians, sports figures and more. Each image, printed by Gotham Imaging in New York, was printed on either GALERIE Prestige Gold Cotton Textured or GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Silk. The images were hung without frame and glass so that guests could actually touch and feel the paper itself.
