Vincent Versace - Turning the Last Page of 1959

cuba3.png

Everybody and his brother is in Cuba these days shooting objective images of what we all fear may soon be history. Indeed, a view of Havana's crumbling colonial architecture will certainly lose a certain appeal when you can clearly see a Starbucks in the image. Few of these photographers, however, are coming home with images that capture a people and place on a deeper, more personal level. Versace is one of those photographers and we are honored to be able to work with him to print, mount and display some of the most poignant of these images.

The exhibition, which runs from September 21 through October 16, 2015, includes 12 pieces of which seven are color and five black and white. The color images were captured with a Nikon D750 and a 28-300mm lens. The black and whites are all infrared and were captured with a modified Nikon D800 to record in the near infrared part of the spectrum. All of the images were printed on an Epson 9900 using HDR K3 pigmented inks on Epson Premium Semimatte paper and mounted to iBond with a lustre UV-blocking overlaminate.

Large Scale Retail Display Project

We've been involved in a lot of retail display projects, but this one was especially rewarding because the final results are so dramatic. The 40"x74" image, a modified piece of stock art, was facemounted behind glossy acrylic and installed on a wall visible to both passers-by and customers of the salon.

Inkjet or Digital C-Print?

"Better than dropping your work at a photo lab front desk, unsure where it's  going. The Mullen Brothers greet you and stay in touch through the whole printing, mounting and installation process." 

Thomas Winz, Photographer

We get asked all the time why we don’t offer digital c-prints. The answer to that question would have been different ten years ago, but evolving print technology has changed the relative merits of both techniques. In short, we now offer only inkjet printing because we think it’s better. Here’s why:

1) Permanence. C-prints are made with chemicals that degrade over time. Inkjet prints made using pigmented inks are proven to last much longer than c-prints. Testing by Wilhelm Imaging Research shows a Display Permanence Rating for Lambda prints of 40 years (framed under glass) and 49 years (framed with UV filter), while prints made on an Epson Stylus Pro will hold their color and saturation for 108 and 175 years, respectively. For some applications, longevity is not a concern, but why not print for longevity if you have that option?

2) Paper Options. With a c-print, you have some wonderful paper options, as long as you’re looking for glossy. With inkjet, on the other hand, you have literally hundreds of paper options ranging from very light to extra heavy, smooth to course, matte to metallic. We believe it’s important to be able to select a paper that complements the image.

3) Print Quality. Of course this is subjective, but many professionals in this field, ourselves included, feel that the newest generation of print heads and ink sets provide a color range and image sharpness that is superior to that available through digital c-print technology.

A lot of photographers we talk to who are selling prints of their work remind us that the term “C-Print” has a distinct marketing advantage over the term “Inkjet print” given the long history of traditional photo printing versus the relatively recent development of inkjet printing. That's a valid reason to go the digital c-print route, but doing so comes at the expense of quality and longevity.

Key and Peele at Mullen Brothers! Almost.

We are thrilled to be working on two large prints this week for our Los Angeles friends Smallz + Raskind. Their two prints are 30" x 40" one landscape and one portrait. Both are face mounted to quarter inch crystal clear acrylic with archival museum board backers. Wood back frames with integrated hanging cleats complete the package. Shipping out to LA at the end of the week. But before they go here is a shot of Key and Peele awaiting their trip through our roller laminator. Super fun project. The team at Smallz + Raskind have been awesome to work with!

Maze

We are working with one of our favorite local photographers this week. A decorator looking to finish a new loft space contacted us looking for some interesting photographs. Working together we picked "Maze" by Winni Wintermeyer. Since I first saw this image I have always thought face-mounting would be a perfect way to display it. We printed the image at 37.25" by 29.5" and we have laminated it with optically clear adhesive in preparation for face-mounting to .125" acrylic. Should be awesome, can’t wait to see the finished image!
