The Prints

ABOUT THE AGNOSCO EXHIBITION PRINTS

The 55 photographs within the AGNOSCO exhibition are printed with the highest quality papers and inks at a world-class photo lab.

What is an archival pigment print?

The AGNOSCO exhibition combines 38 color and 17 monochrome photographs which were produced using both analog and digital camera equipment.

Digital editing is limited to the same basic standards common to darkroom printing procedures. The photographs presented at the AGNOSCO exhibition have undergone minimal editing and are presented to reflect the scene as close as possible to how it actually appeared.

ABOUT THE PRINTER – Epson 11880 Model

(text from Epson website)

At Epson, we never forget our heritage. We never forget the thousands of Creative Professionals who helped guide our engineering development to become what it is today. And after a decade has passed, we are still fascinated by what is possible.

There is a single word used among the Stylus Pro engineering teams within Epson – Monozukuri (mono-zu-kuri). When translated, it represents the human involvement required to develop the world’s most difficult technologies – and succeeding.

Introducing the Epson Stylus Pro 11880

Representing the ultimate expression of Epson Stylus Pro engineering, the Epson Stylus Pro 11880 is produced by a dedicated team of specialists. Every step of its production is scrutinized, while incorporating our latest technologies, including an advanced MicroPiezo® TFP print head, real-time automatic switching between Matte and Photo Black inks, automatic nozzle verification and cleaning, and more. The result is the world’s most advanced 64-inch wide photographic printer.

Epson UltraChrome K3® is the standard by which all other professional level ink technologies are judged. Now enhanced with our breakthrough new Vivid Magenta pigments, our latest-generation ink technology requires only eight colors, including a three-level black technology, to significantly raise the quality levels for professional color and black-and-white prints.

Imagine producing 64-inch-wide archival prints with amazing color fidelity, gloss level, and scratch resistance, while providing consistently stable colors that significantly outperform lesser ink technologies. Imagine producing professional, neutral and toned, black-and-white prints with even higher density levels, along with virtually no metamerism or bronzing.

With an even higher level of ink droplet accuracy, we’ve developed an all-new MicroPiezo TFP print head, featuring a new ink repelling coating technology for reduced nozzle clogging. And, when combined with our new Epson AccuPhoto™ HD screening technology, at an astonishing resolution of 2880 x 1440 dpi, Epson has once again raised the level of image quality – even exceeding our previous best.

Capable of handling virtually any media type, in roll or cut-sheet, up to 64 inches wide, Epson sets the standard for professional media use. Whether producing sellable color or black-and-white photography, fine art reproduction, or color accurate proofs for client approvals, never before have Creative Professionals had such a powerful tool, allowing them to produce their vision without compromise.

Our latest Epson Stylus Pro printers continue to represent a level of technology unprecedented in Epson’s history. Combining the extreme precision of an Epson Stylus Pro print engine, with the extraordinary performance of our latest Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink technology, Epson continues to redefine the future of wide-format printing.
