As a leading player in the photography and fine art market, Epson is proud to supporter the “100 FACES OF LONDON” project with photographer Milan Svanderlik. The exhibition will be shown in The Crypt Gallery throughout June and July.
100 Faces of London features portraits of one hundred Londoners, reflecting the huge diversity of people who make up this city. All the participants were photographed within a twelve-month period, mostly during 2010. The youngest sitter was 20 years old and the oldest 100. Every effort was made to embrace a broad range of ethnic backgrounds.
The images in the exhibition were printed by the photographer on an Epson Stylus Pro 3880, using advanced ink-jet technology and UltraChome K3 inks with Vivid Magenta. These inks incorporate high-density pigments, providing exceptional stability and longevity of the final image. The paper used was Epson ‘Cold Press Natural’, which is an acid-free, 100% cotton rag paper, ideal for archival usage. This combination of Epson ink and paper gives an exceptionally wide colour gamut, making it ideal for portraiture such as those seen in this exhibition.
In addition to the prints on display at the exhibition, a large-format ‘Heritage Book’ has been produced, comprising high-quality prints of all 100 portraits, printed by Milan, using archival paper, printing inks that incorporate high-density pigments, and with a binding crafted for longevity. The ‘Heritage Book’ will be on display in the main entrance foyer to the gallery throughout the exhibition.
Nick White, Epson Pro Graphics manager commented: “Epson is committed to the Fine Art sector and values artistic talent. We are therefore delighted to support the 100 Faces of London exhibition which is a diverse, cultural and interesting project.”
Milan Svanderlik explains: “Without the use of the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 and media, creating this project would not have been possible. The quality and standard of the products and the prints it produces are remarkable and I am pleased with the results which will be shown at the exhibition in London. ”
