Harman bite the big apple - Harman Photo supply paper for prestigious New York photography exhibition featuring the work of Jeff Hirsch.
As Sex and the City undergoes its worldwide movie premiere, Harman Photo have revealed their involvement in an event which would make the characters of the hit TV show proud. The globally respected inkjet brand of Harman technology Limited recently supplied its Harman Photo Gloss FB Al paper to an exhibition by Jeff Hirsch, who, for the last eight years, has been taking shots of New York for acclaimed society website New York Social Diary.
Jeff is a co-founder of the site and everyday takes new pictures for use on its pages. Thirty-nine of these images featured in the exhibition, which ran from May 15th to May 19th 2008 at The Chinese Porcelain Company on New York’s Park Avenue and 58th Street. Throughout the event, prints of the exhibits were also on sale, with all proceeds going to the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy.
To ensure the exhibits looked as impressive as possible, Jeff chose to work with New York based Gotham Imaging – a digital fine art pigment print studio, specialising in large format, museum quality printing. A firm of Master Printers with over 25 years’ experience, Gotham has a long track record of meeting the needs of world-renowned photographers. For jobs of this nature, it always uses Harman Photo Gloss FB Al.
Peter Berberian from the company explains: “We’re big fans of the Harman Photo Gloss paper and use it whenever customers demand prints of truly exceptional quality. Its performance in terms of image detail and definition, tonal range and vibrancy is amazing. It blows everything else out of the water.”
Jeff Hirsch himself was equally complimentary: “The exhibition at The Chinese Porcelain Company was a big event for me and I was particularly delighted with the quality of the finished prints. I’ve encountered many digital papers in my time but the Harman Photo Gloss product is by far one of the best I’ve ever seen.”
Meanwhile, Steven Brierley, Harman’s Sales Director for North America and Canada added: “We are delighted to have played a part in this exhibition. Jeff has a real eye and his shots are exceptional. We are glad the Harman Photo Gloss FB Al paper was able to do them full justice.”
