Crossing Over by Maurice Broomfield
Crossing Over by Maurice Broomfield.


Press Release:
Specifically, the monochrome business of Harman technology Limited is supplying its innovative Harman Galerie FB Digital paper for use during Maurice’s Crossing Over exhibition, which commences at Dimbola Lodge on the Isle of Wight on the 8th February and runs through to the 8th June 2008. From there - and as a number of the images involved feature shots taken of American industries in the UK, such as the Ford plant in Dagenham - the intention is to take to the exhibition to a gallery in Los Angeles where various examples of Maurice’s work are already displayed. Crossing Over will then return to London’s HOST Gallery in the autumn.

A Fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photographers and an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, 92-year old Maurice has been perfecting his craft for over 70 years. During this time he has been awarded the RPS Hood Medal in recognition of outstanding Colour Photography and has represented Great Britain at the World Fair of International Colour Photography in America. He has also received the Kodak Award, which was subsequently followed by a commission from the US Department of Tourism to photograph America through the eyes of an Englishman. This exhibition was opened the following year by the American Ambassador to Britain.

Now no longer dependant on commissioned work, Maurice has more recently been able to travel to lesser-known parts of Europe, Australia, Africa, America and the Far East, photographing conservation and restoration projects. The Crossing Over exhibition features shots captured by Maurice during these travels and includes a number of previously unseen images.

Considering the prestigious and high profile nature of the event, the exhibition’s organisers were keen to use Harman Galerie FB Digital paper (formerly known as Ilford Galerie FB Digital) in order to do the prints on display complete justice.

This unique paper offers the best of both worlds. At 315gsm and with the same renown fibre base baryta as used on Ilford Ilfobrom Galerie FB and Ilford Multigradeo IV FB Fiber products, it delivers the aesthetics and archival properties of true black and white silver gelatin prints but is actually designed for printing with digital laser printers – including the Durst Lambda and OCE Lightjet printers. It also benefits from optimised spectral sensitivity and is supplied in 100ft (30.5M) rolls varying in width from 20 inches to 50 inches.

These qualities, combined with its exceptional performance, have made Harman Galerie FB Digital the paper of choice for fine art collectors, museums, art galleries, high-end prolabs, design agencies and photographers producing limited edition prints.

Speaking of the exhibition and the company’s involvement, Ilford Photo Marketing Director, Howard Hopwood, said: “We are delighted to be involved in Maurice’s Crossing Over exhibition. Not only is it a real testament to the pedigree and performance of Harman Galerie FB Digital, but it’s also an honour to play a part in a retrospective by such a pre-eminent photographer whose work has been admired for generations. In all, the event looks set to be a great success with photographers and enthusiasts from all over the world already expressing a keen interest in attending.”
