Over the last couple of years I have been privileged to work with Tariq Dajani making Large Format Archival Pigment Prints of his Arabian Horse photographs.
These images really are stunning and look wonderful when printed as large as A0 on Cotton Rag. I have been making another print for Tariq this week—previous works I have made for him are with the Jordanian Royal Family, some members of the ruling families of the UAE and with various other influential people in the Middle East.
For now, I shall let the photographs do the talking—here are three for your delectation:
This week, Dan Holdsworth has been in Geneva for the opening of his show ‘Blackout‘—well worth a look.
From the Press Release:
“In Blackout, Holdsworth presents three new works, enormously scaled prints of mountains dazzling with crystalline allure, refracting not in light, but rather its total absence. Taken in Iceland, a volcanic otherworld where day is night and ice is sooty pitch, Holdsworth’s negative images are literal double inversions; their black and white clarity negates all natural logic. Their effect is sheer magic, the sublime made modular and spectacularly tangible: glaciers transform with sculpted solidity, as if they could fit in the palm of a hand, escarpments buckle with the scratchy translucency of glass, containing prisms of spectral hues, and expanses of atrementaceous sky bear down, suffocating as all consuming voids. Darkness holds its secrets, as Holdsworth’s photographs testify: beautiful, mesmerising, larger than life, and absolutely inexplicable.”
Printing has begun this week at Jack Lowe Studio for entrants lucky enough to get through to the second round of judging for the Association of Photographers Awards 2010. If you are among the selected, there is still time for me to make your prints if files arrive over the coming week…
