  • Back at the very excellent #lablab in Kraków to make a complete set of c-prints of ‘Good Morning, America (Volume One)’. Here are some early, small tests before we move to a larger scale tomorrow.

Ohhhh, exciting! I really like your work in America that I've seen so far!

Really looking forward to getting a copy of this. The stuff I've seen from it so far is possibly my favourite of yours

Can tell the prints are exquisite - even at a distance and via Instagram 😉

"c-print" as in chromogenic? I thought you were a digital chap? Or are these chromogenic from digital files? I've had that done but didn't really see the point... Sorry, I know these technical questions are dreary, but you have me very confused...

@prewar_fathead ... for a couple of years I’ve been making my own inkjet prints on a 24” Epson, and getting great results. BUT a digital c-type on gloss paper is still my preference. Although it might be a tiny bit less sharp the fact that it’s made with light and therefore feels like it’s IN the paper rather than sitting on the surface (like an inkjet) gives it more depth and greater ‘presence’. They are very seductive. It’s a subjective thing, of course, but all things considered I still prefer them. And #LabLab are so great to work with; nothing is too much trouble. Does that answer your question?

@marktpower Thanks for taking the time to reply. I agree with you that “real” prints have physical qualities (look, feel and even smell) that are special. The lab I used here in Vancouver also said this process is sharper than inkjet, but it’s likely that my eyes and my images aren’t sharp enough for it to matter. The concern that I had is based on an assumption that inkjet pigments are inherently more stable than the chromogenic colours. Angels on the head of a pin, perhaps.
