As mentioned in a previous blog post, we recently worked alongside the lovely Greta Costello
in the lead up to her most recent exhibition, Broader Reality. We
completed the film scanning and printing for all works in this show and
last night I attended the opening and was very impressed with the work
Greta describes Broader Reality
as an exhibition of analogue photographs captured between 2008-2012.
The exhibition presents ordinary moments in time, carefully composed,
frozen, reproduced – and therefore abstracted. The panoramic format of
these images heightens the power and persistence of the natural
environment. By transforming these scenes into a ‘broader reality’, the
viewer is encouraged to reflect on their relationship with the urban and
natural environments that they inhabit.
Overall the show looked nice printed on the increasingly popular Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310gsm
and each work was expertly framed. I really enjoyed the inclusion of
the detail in each image showing the rough edges that comes from
scanning film into digital format. Looked very cool and gave each image a
distinct difference. Definitely a show worth checking out for those in
Congratulations to Greta on a successful opening and a fantastic body
of work. I’m a believer that photography shows in Melbourne are
becoming more and more popular and Greta’s show was an example of that
last night. Broader Reality can be seen at No Vacancy Gallery at Federation Square until the 21st of October.
...I found Image Science a breeze to work with. Easy ordering process and I loved the way they made me feel like I was in complete control of the printing process without actually having to print anything myself. My print turned out perfect - it was sharp and matched the colours to how I saw the image on my iPad Pro’s screen.
