From 8th April 2008 Mike Figgis, photographer and film director will be on site at The Photographers’ Gallery creating a cumulative portrait of Soho. The exhibition, entitled Composites, will start at the beginning of the second week of Figgis’ shoot and will include images of Soho’s iconic buildings, residents, workers and visitors.
During that week, Figgis will be found working in the gallery printing his images using the Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer and posting them on the gallery walls. Visitors who view the work in progress will have an incentive to return and see the final results. The exhibition will continue until 13th April 2008.
“I’ve been an active fan of the Epson range of printers for some time now,” comments Figgis, “and am delighted to be exploring the dynamics of the A2+ Stylus Pro 3800. As the work (both colour and monochrome) is to be auctioned at a later stage it is important for me to know that the prints are of archival quality. I will be using the Epson enhanced matte media together with the UltraChrome K3 inks and the tests I’ve done so far are very good.”
