Photography Primus Ilford sets focus on fine art printing

September 20, 2018

Ilford will exhibit at Photokina (Cologne, September 26th-29th, hall 3.1, booth number D39) and focus on its new fine art media for the production of unique art prints for museums and galleries. Ilford uses the maximum print width of today's printers for the most important media. Special feature is the printing width of up to sixty-four inches.

The joint cooperation between Ilford Masters and exhibition houses over the last four years is bearing fruit: media have been optimized and developed to meet the various, high demands.

The goal of Managing Director Arnoud Mekenkamp is to become the leading name in the fine art market, as Ilford is in photography for a long time.

Exhibition Highlights and Novelties

With pride and under the motto: "Back To The Roots" Ilford presents its new packaging design for "ILFORD Gallery", which goes back to the well-known design and still inspires purists and enthusiasts today. The Australian photographer and Ilford Master Vicky Papas was won for extraordinary fashion and portrait shots on the new packaging. She will be a guest at the Ilford booth during Photokina next to further Ilford Master like Manuel Thomé, Herbert Piel and Eli Dijkers.

"Enables Unique Art Prints for Galleries and Museums on Canon, Epson and HP in full printing width"

Gold Fibre Gloss, various matt cotton and PE papers are available in a width of 64 inches, enabling the full printing width of large printers in the field of pigmented inks for art printing:

  • Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Gloss
  • Ilford Galerie Smooth Cotton Rag
  • Ilford Galerie Textured Cotton Rag
  • Ilford Galerie Cotton Artist Textured

The focus of interest at the last trade fairs was: "ILFORD Creative Emulsion". Ilford takes this into account and offers several daily demonstrations with professional artists and photographers as a special feature. Here it is demonstrated how one can easily and quickly make something emotionally special into something special also visually and haptically.
