Photographer, Jon Crispin, photographs a collection of suitcases left behind by residents of the Willard Psychiatric Center in Willard, NY. To Jon, they open a small window into the lives of some of the people who lived at the facility. After shooting, Jon began producing prints on Entrada Rag for the "Changing the Face of What is Normal" exhibit at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. He will also be part of TEDx talk on Martha's Vineyard in August. View his full collection and his wordpress site!
Several years ago a friend gave several boxes of Entrada and it is really the only paper I have been using since. The profiles you provide are right on the money, and I am always happy when the printer spits out a print.
Jonathan Morse, a lifelong photographer and printmaker who uses Moab papers extensively ranging from Entrada, Slickrock, Moenkopi Unryu and others, will be presenting a new body of work entitled FABRICATIONS opening on May 10, 2014 at Byzantium Lofts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His work weaves photographic and drawn material into wholly new images, celebrating 21st century mark-making made possible by the incredible range of substrates now available to the contemporary artist who wishes to use digital imaging as an original printmaking medium. For this exhibit he has chosen Moab Colorado Fiber Gloss for its brilliant color rendition, rich blacks and its ability to capture detail with an almost three-dimensional ink deposit. For more information about Jonathan and the past decade of his printmaking, please log on to his website www.jmorseart.com.

Although we have been working with Douglas Kirkland for years, we never had the opportunity (or time) to just sit and talk with the Master. So, a few weeks ago I called Douglas's studio to see if he had a moment to meet. His assistant, Miranda, answered with a pleasant greeting and got Douglas on the phone. We decided on a day best for me to pop by in the morning before their afternoon shoot, which would allow me to see the images that they were printing for their large Brisbane Gallery of Modert Art show in September. The meeting was set and my schedule was prepared for about an hour long visit.

Cotton is the ultimate eco-friendly material used in some of our papers such as Entrada and Somerset. In fact, the cotton used to manufacture these papers is not from the puffy white flower that we all recognize as cotton, but rather the linters, or byproduct, from the textile industry. Textiles are made using the longest, highest-quality fibers - the rest is discarded. This wasted cotton is salvaged and used to manufacture our cotton papers. Nothing could be more eco-friendly than reusing a product that is considered waste - otherwise this would all end up in the trash.
More information on cotton & the environment can be found here:
We recently had the pleasure of coming across Tsilli Pines, a Northwest artist who uses Moab Entrada Rag papers in her collection of modern wedding certificates, called New Ketubah. Her Ketubahs are heirloom pieces personalized for each couple and made to order.Naturally, she uses only the very best materials for longevity and for a tactile, luxurious quality. In addition to her modern take on a several-thousand-year-old tradition, what makes Tsilli's use of Entrada so special is that parts of the design are hand-sewn into the paper.

A great perk we have is being lucky enough to meet so many talented photographers whose images stop us dead in our tracks. Robert Clark is no exception.
An architect and graphic designer by training, Robert was always concerned about the paper being specified for his design projects. "It is a sensual concept. Fine paper feels good in your hands. To me the Entrada just feels good to hold. And it just prints so well."
Moab Master photographer Lauren Henkin has been invited by Portland's (Oregon) Blue Sky Gallery to discuss her work, and Displaced, her new artist book (printed on Entrada Rag). Displaced is based on her self-imposed Nova Scotian exile.

"...these black-and-white photos stir with a contemplativeness and emotional directness that carry the frisson of discovery. We're witnessing the development -- pun intended -- of a peculiar, worthy talent." - David Row, The Oregonian (Read the full review here.)
Blue Sky is a non-profit space dedicated to educating the public about photography. Their special mission continues to be showing artists that no one has ever heard of, but will. As such, Blue Sky has been credited with having the best record of discovering new photographers of any artists' space in the country.
Hope to see you there.
I first met the photographer and bookmaker Lauren Henkin about two weeks ago and I was instantly blown away. I was taken aback at the craftsmanship and detail that went in to each handmade book (using Entrada Rag as the pages) and was reminded of the many different ways that artists use to present their work. The book that Lauren showed me had the Entrada pages professionally bound to a hardcover, cloth-lined case.
Lauren's books made such a huge impression on everyone here at Moab that we asked her to become a Moab Master. Over the years we have had the fortune to work with so many photographers and artists who use Moab papers to enhance their work, but we had no method to share these photographers with the world. So we developed the Moab Masters - a collection of artists both well-established and up-and-coming, each with their own unique voice. You'll find artists who are just about to take off, like Lauren, alongside long-established photographers such as Douglas Kirkland, Robert Farber and Barbara Bordnick. The Moab Master galleries can be found on our Facebook page.
