First-time sponsor of Art Miami, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase its range of printing solutions for the fine arts industry at CONTEXT December 3 -- 8 at the Midtown Miami complex. One of the most important annual contemporary art events in the United States, Art Miami showcases the best available artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries in collaboration with 125 of the world's most respected galleries. Additionally, Art Miami's sister fair CONTEXT is dedicated to the development and reinforcement of emerging and mid-career, cutting-edge artists.
At the Canon booth #E13, award-winning photographer Robert Farber will showcase a collage of his most impressive images and share insights and personal experiences for working with the output devices. Show attendees can interact with Canon's latest artistic printing solutions -- including the imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer, which features enhanced color management capabilities and the PIXMA PRO-1 printer -- a powerful, high-quality professional inkjet printer that produces stunning color prints and dynamic black-and-white images. All of the images will be printed on Moab's Somerset Museum Rag. Robert will also be giving out 16x20 sized images.
"As photographers, we look to tell a story or convey a message through the power of an image," said photographer Robert Farber. "Canon's imagePROGRAF and PIXMA PRO printers help showcase this story by delivering high-quality, archival imaging capabilities and creative applications that can enhance moments we've captured through our lens. I'm looking forward to engaging with other professionals at Art Miami to hear some of their latest inspirations and discuss the potential that lies with Canon's fine art printers."
What a whirlwind of a day! The show was packed. Slickrock Metallic Silver almost stole the show, but it had some stiff competition with the Moab Master presentations at the far end of the booth. Large 40x60 prints on the Silver from Harold Davis and Jim LaSala truly showed the impressive caliber of this amazing paper.
And those who were able to see the five Moab Master presentations got a real treat with insights into NASA, Haiti, Cuba, African wildlife and fashion. Live Slickrock printing demos on the new Canon Pixma PRO-1 rounded out the day.
The line-up tomorrow is equally impressive:
11:00am Michael Zide Through A Photographer’s Eyes
12:00pm Jody Dole Renowned image maker and digital photographer pioneer
3:00pm Ryszard Horowitz Capturing nonexistent world
Get ready to be dazzled (and informed) by some of the biggest names in photography. We're pretty stoked to announce the photographers who will be giving short presentations in the Moab booth (#750) during the upcoming PhotoPlusExpo show in NYC.
Like all things Moab, we are taking a slightly different approach to these presentation: We've simply asked the speakers to talk about themselves and their work - no sales pitch. Some will be conducting hands-on printing workshops while others will be providing an intimate discussion on their work. Harold Davis will even be giving away copies of his new book!
We're still hammering out the exact times, but the confirmed line up will include Andy Biggs, Barbara Bordnick, Harold Davis, Jody Dole, Robert Farber, Jim Graham, Ryszard Horowitz, Douglas Kirkland, Jim LaSala, Michael Soluri, Salvatore Vasapolli and Michael Zide.
As you can see, all the photographers are at the peak of their game, each having made a huge impact on the photo industry. Expect every presentation to be a keynote event.
On April 8th, the Dubrovnik Museum of Modern Art will present an overall retrospective of Robert Farber's work.
The images in this exhibition are pigment prints printed on Somerset Enhanced Velvet archival paper.
"...At an early age I had a desire to be a painter, I worked in oils and watercolors. When I started as a photographer the use of certain films and filters gave me the painterly look that I was after. However, printing the images were limited to a straight photographic process. So, when digital printing was introduced, I experimented with various papers and was able to go back to the original fine art paper that I used for my watercolors, Somerset Fine Art."
The acclaimed American photographer, Robert Farber, was commissioned by Juan Gallardo to document Mexico.
Through an an extensive tour of the country, "Farber was able to capture and convey, in a beautiful, wordless way, the essence of the values, among others, Mexicans have chosen to remember, inspire and strengthen: Their sense of pride, their devotion to work, faith and family, their joy of life, and the beauty that surrounds them."
The result is this gorgeous Red Silk wrapped portfolio box (18x24 inches, 46 x 61cm) which includes a collection of four limited edition prints, signed and numbered plus signed title page all printed on Somerset Enhanced Velvet fine art archival paper.
Aside from this limited edition portfolio project, there are exhibitions being organized for Mexico, NorthAmerica and other countries around the world.
One of the most renowned and respected photographers, Robert Farber, will be opening his studio for a workshop on photographing the nude. Robert will demonstrate his shooting with multiple setups using both natural and artificial lighting. Students will then have an opportunity to shoot the models in the different lighting situations under Robert's guidance. Kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with one of America's photographic icons.
