One of my earliest joys in working with photography was developing prints. This dark, secretive process was quite intimate with the work as I attempted to coax the best/most interesting image forward. Our show at Varnish gave me a new chance to once again take control of our printing process and rekindle that flame — hence the big box.
I’ll go over our decision process to show you how we got to where we are today. But this, like all things, is a living process, not one that is a fixed decision. As new technologies come out, and presentations shift, I’m sure we’ll tweak until we get it as best as we can.
The other nice effect of printing is how it informs our production process. To take it through from lighting to printing — figuring out how to find and cultivate the nuance — is enlightening to say the least
