I work closely with master printer, Richard
Jackson, and talked to him about the kind of
look I wanted for an exhibit with Anastasia
Photo- a New York City gallery specializing
in documentary photography and photo-
We both agreed that we were afraid of
losing the deep blacks in the images with a
digital process; but with our introduction
to Canson In;nity’s Rag Photographique,
I found that the prints were able to interpret
my photographs very well.
Other papers I’ve tried over the years have
just caused problems for me, but not the
In;nity. ;is is the ;rst paper I’ve really been
excited about. It feels organic and not so digital
. . . it feels alive.
My images have mainly been seen in magazine
format, while Canson’s papers have allowed me
to display my images di;erently. ;ey give the
limited edition prints a distinctive look, which
in my mind communicates as art and translation,
rather than just a photograph. ;ose viewing the
collection seem to agree.
Quality is something you simply cannot take for
granted. I’m a huge fan of this material.
