Genesis Exhibition to Feature ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk

GenesisOn April 11th ILFORD Master Sebastiao Salgado‘s much anticipated Genesis exhibition will open its doors at the Natural History Museum in London featuring 200 stunning black and white images printed on ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk.  Genesis is Salgado’s third and perhaps last great photographic project. The exhibition is the culmination of a photographic journey of an epic scale which began in 2004 traveling to over 40 countries and culminating in this body of work 8 years later at the end of 2011. The results show a series of pictures about what is still pristine on the planet and Salgado’s hope is “to do a kind of new presentation of the planet, in order to identify it and see it differently. With these pictures we are trying to see if we could understand the planet and respect it in a new way.”

Genesis will be in London from 11 April to 8 September 2013. For tickets, prices and details please visit the Natural History Museum website. Click here for a full list of GENESIS Exhibition Venue information.

A 2 volume book titled Sebastiao Salgado: Genesis is coming soon. Click here for availability and more information. Check out Sebastian Salgado’s two other major photographic projects. “Sebastião Salgado: Workers: An Archaeology of the Industrial Age” is available as a hardcover book in addition to “Sebastiao Salgado: Migrations” both published in 2005.

Then for the Genesis show we decided to be much stricter in our choice as we wanted to use a paper that would give us only the best… [W]e came back to … ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk. It’s a really beautiful paper. A nice, nice paper and we are very happy with it.” Read the entire interview with Salgado and why he selected ILFORD paper for this historic exhibition click here.

ILFORD Master Seth Resnick and Gold Cotton Smooth Fine Art Photo Paper

seth_resnickmaster_copyILFORD Master Seth Resnick and Gold Cotton Smooth fine art photo paper are an item.  They simply love each other! ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Cotton Smooth is one of 5 new fine art papers introduced in the US on March 1, 2013. It’s heavy at 330gsm, it has no optical brighteners, and the surface texture doesn’t interfere with the image.  That’s all it took for Seth Resnick to fall madly in love.

“It’s heavy and one of the things I really look for when I’m making fine art prints or gallery prints… I want a paper that feels like ‘paper,’ not something I’m going to write on,” said Seth. “It looks absolutely, absolutely D-65 Workflowbeyond awesome.”

Not only is Seth Resnick the newest ILFORD Master, he’s an X-Rite Coloratti, and Canon Explorer of Light. He and partner Jamie Spritzer own D-65 Digital Workflow, the workflow consulting and education arm of the business. And his latest venture with John Paul Caponigro called Digital Photo Destinations keeps him on the road to Antarctica, Iceland, and the Atacoma just to name a few of those destinations.

Print is Not Dead | Elinor Carucci on ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk

Elinor Carucci talks about why she uses ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk

ILFORD Master Elinor Carucci is an Israeli born photographer living and working in New York City with her family. Her fine art photography of the most intimate moments of her family’s life has been shown in galleries all over the world and garnered many awards. Elinor has the uncanny ability to record split seconds of time that speak to us about the human condition. Her photos evoke emotion, they disturb,  they explain, and they confuse. While seemingly recording mundane slices of life her work speaks to us about the human condition and most especially about what it means to be in relationship with others.

I try to photograph them all.” (more…)
