Full Moon Kingdom


Our first sponsorship of the year is Kathrin Simons Full moon kingdom.

Over a period of two years Kathrin visited the zoo at night when the moon was at its brightest. Working with a NIKON D800 Kathrin would select an ISO setting as low as 200 requiring exposure times of up to 3 minutes.  The result is an exhibition that combines technical and aesthetic discipline with an inspired creative vision to produce an intense and immersive experience.
We took this photo (above) last year when Kathrin Simon came in to share the excitement of the first finished print. Stunning.

Kathrin chose ILFORD Galerie Prestige Metallic Gloss for the collection.  While this paper requires careful lighting it delivers both the shadow detail and splashes of warmth critical to Kathrin’s story.
The exhibition closes on the 20th and so this weekend is an ideal time to check it out. To find out the story behind the story check out the video below:

Are you preparing work for the Auckland Festival of Photography 2016?

We are accepting proposals for sponsorship for exhibitions in this years festival.  If you think that your exhibition would work using ILFORD Galerie Prestige Metallic Gloss we would love to talk to you about it.
