“White Sheet Series” by Stephen Dupont

White sheet seriesMr Stephen Dupont with his hand stamped prints from the “White Series”. I printed these a year or two back using the Foma choloro-bromide stock (matte finish) with a specialised warmtone developer. Steve always had the intention of using hand made stamps to “finish” the prints, giving each image a very unique result. They are to hang next year in Mebourne. Can’t wait to see them framed and in a gallery.

Hanging with Raul & Leysis

Raul Canibano & Leysis QuesadaWhat have I been up too…? Where to start! REPORTAGE – how good has this show been. Amazing works from around the globe, right here in Sydney. Well done Steveo & Anna.

First off I had the pleasure of working on a special folio for Mr. Jack Picone. We spent several days in the dark. A real gentleman and a fine snapper.

Next was CUBAN photographer Raul Canibano with Leysis Quesada translating. In the dark we all speak the same lingo I discovered.

Also under the red light was Manuela from the Rennie Ellis Archive checking out the digital enlarger. Considering I only made a quick test, she was most impressed.

And lastly Mr. Page and Mau have some brilliant news regarding a very special folio, but all I can say is that the images have never been seen as a collection. More on this to come.

Have a great long weekend and get out & about to see some fine works hanging around Sydney’s galleries
