Info on Images for Bedford Show

I just finished printing the photographs for my show in Bedford which opens on November 3. The show will consist of two distinct portfolios. A Journey Across Wales has 20 images captured during my May 2010 visit to South Wales. Monochromatic Visions has 31 images and includes several platinum/palladium prints made on hand coated paper. All images are printed on 100% cotton rag paper. With the exception of the platinum prints, they have all been printed with archival pigment inks using an Epson 7900 HDR printer. Longevity of the color prints is estimated at 80 to 100 years which is well in excess of of conventional color printing. The black & white prints are estimated to have a longevity of 200 to 400 years which is equivalent to traditional black and white silver printing. All longevity estimates are based on proper display and storage and have been obtained from Wilhelm Imaging (
