TIPA award for Hahnemuhle - Hahnemühle’s Photo Rag Baryta wins the photo industry Oscar.
The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) has announced that Hahnemühle’s Photo Rag Baryta, the first digital Baryta paper made of cotton fibres, is the best Fine Art inkjet paper worldwide. For the third time, a Hahnemühle Digital FineArt collection paper has won the TIPA award for the best photo and imaging product of the year.
“We are truly proud of having once again been awarded a TIPA trophy,” says Jörg Adomat, Hahnemühle’s Managing Director. “This is an important award for our Photo Rag Baryta which combines the advantages of a pure cotton paper with the unequalled look of traditional baryta papers from analogue darkroom laboratories.”
The coating of the finely structured high-gloss paper contains barium sulphate, making for a stunning image. No optical brighteners are used for the production of the paper but it features a pleasant white and a perfect balance between brilliance and reflection, nevertheless. Due to these characteristics, the paper represents the No 1 choice for prestigious gallery prints, with black-and-white photography enthusiasts in particular appreciating the high Dmax value and the reproduction of the finest shade of grey nuances. At the same time, Photo Rag Baryta also is perfectly suitable for luminous colour pictures.
With its weight of 315 gsm it is satisfyingly slip proof and impressive to handle. Like every Hahnemühle paper, Photo Rag Baryta also features ultimate ageing resistance and archival quality, suitable for every Fine Art inkjet printer.
