Lisa Ahlberg’s location portraits will be on exhibition at Plasteel Gallery during April and May. This highly engaging, simple, and direct portraiture presents a variety of individuals, all members of a specific community. The prints were made using one if my favorite paper and ink combinations, Hahnemuhle Bamboo, a beautiful slightly warm fine art paper made from Bamboo, a harvested renewable resource. The ink setup was a straight blend of Cone Seleium and Warm PiezoTone monochromatic inks. This is one of those paper and ink combinations that seems to hit a sweet spot, the prints are beautiful.
Lisa’s medium format film was drum scanned, and prints in a variety of sizes were produced, ten 20 x 24″ images, and a variety of exquisite small sizes. This is a substantial body of work, a dedicated commitment.
