Unique Photo in Fairfield, New Jersey has a “unique” photo show hanging in the store. Unique employees participated offering their photographs to be printed on ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Pearl inkjet paper. Diverse subject matter and multiple shooting styles makes this show interesting and fun. You’ll enjoy seeing how ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Pearl media reproduces a variety of colors and contrast ranges.
The show consists of 30 to 40 large prints. The photographs include at least one print from all of the showroom and phone sales employees at Unique Photo. The prints are hanging in the Unique University classroom inside the store. The show will be up through the end of October, 2011. This show is planned to be an annual event at Unique.
I asked Mike Zawadzki why they decided to have a show of employee photographs. “When you go to a camera store it’s nice to know that the employees are also photographers… So it really shows that everyone here is still a working photographer or a photography student,” he said.
Mike also spoke about the excellent reproduction of black and white prints on ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Pearl and the great quality that this paper produces. “It’s very hard to get good quality black and white inkjet prints. A lot of us here are used to printing in a darkroom… The ILFORD paper has a really nice quality for black and white and the color ones look great too!”
