Jennifer Stanton’s photography will be part of “Autumn Introductions”, one of eight artists at the Seattle Art Museum Gallery throughout September. Both black and white and color negatives were drum scanned for the prints which then required a few interesting approaches. Her darkroom process is referred to as PhotoLith, and results in a silver print with an attractive warm hue. After taking sample LAB measurements from her prints a color curve was designed to impart the same values to a “color” inkjet print. A special low gamut, and highly linear ink setup is used when little color is required, for greatest smoothness, accuracy, and total GCR to avoid color shifts. We printed the images 36 inches square on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta for it’s natural surface akin to fiber silver paper and it’s neutral paper base hue.

Jennifer’s color images were 120mm strips with overlapping exposures made with a Holga. The results are somewhat painterly, and after some tests an unusual paper was selected- Arches Cover. This paper is not designed for inkjet, has no receptor coating, and requires very careful ink setup in the RIP. The surface is beautiful with a soft watercolor type tooth, and the color takes to the paper in a smooth and subtle way, with a more muted palette. These particular images, printed 48 inches wide, really went well with this approach.
The work will be up from September 8 through October 8
