Today we would like to highlight the work of recent SAIC MFA photo recipient Aspen Mayes.
Aspen uses uses our Epson 11880 on luster paper for it’s ability to print fine detail and its amazing wide color gamut (meaning the amount of colors it can actually recreate)
read what whitewall magazine had to say about her image Untitled (Fireflies inside the body of camera, 8:37-8:39PM, June 26, 2008) printed at the Service Bureau.
-Aspen Mays, in her photo, Untitled (Fireflies inside the body of camera, 8:37-8:39PM, June 26, 2008), takes the use of light to an innovative and dynamic level. As the title indicates, Mays uses the fireflies as a light source, an experiment that creates a gradient-like image, which are both a reference and a challenge to photography’s formal elements. The final image is not the result of the artist looking through her lens, composing a frame or arranging a vantage point. In short, Mays is not “seeing” or employing any directional forces. This uncontrolled and unplanned image relies solely on the chemistry between the unexposed film and the fireflies
The Epson 11880 is one of the only fine-art archival inkjet printers capable of reproducing the intensity of color and detailed color shifts in the image.
Go see it for yourself at Golden Gallery on June 19th.
