I am both extremely pleased and proud to announce that Legion Paper and Moab who produce my absolute favourite photographic papers have officially designated and appointed me as one of their Moab Masters. This makes me to date the first and only Australian photographer to be honoured by Moab with Master status and I would like to thank them for their support. From Moabs website:
Moab Master photographers are a select group of artists connected by their unique visions and their love of reproducing their images on Moab fine art paper. You’ll notice some well-established photographers in the galleries below, as well as photographers on the rise. Moab is proud to be associated with these artists and thank them for trusting Moab with their images.
To my friends in the USA and abroad this means that some of my photography and prints will now be taken and exhibited by Moab to trade shows around the country. You should be able to see some of my photography in print at PhotoPlus Expo in New York as soon as October this year.
To celebrate the appointment I am going to be offering a strictly limited number of my 2011 Fine Art Landscape GOLD Award winning APPA (Australian Professional Photography Awards) Print ‘Blue Berg’. If you are a photographer or collector of fine art photography and have always wondered what a GOLD award winning APPA print looked like then this is your unique chance to own one. Alternatively, if you are just starting out in collecting photography then this will be a very fine start to your collection. This limited ‘special’ edition print will be made on 13 x 19 Moab Somerset Museum Rag paper; which is my absolute favourite fine art paper and will be signed and accompanied by a matching certificate of authenticity. Each print and certificate will include a serialised and numbered hologram identifying its unique number in this edition and verifying its authenticity. Each certificate will be printed on Moab Japanese Moenkopi Washi paper. This Moenkopi Washi paper is made of all natural mulberry fibres by the finest artisans at the Awagami Factory in Tokushima Japan. It is the perfect accompaniment to a paper as beautiful and sensual as Somerset Museum Rag. Each ‘pigment on paper’ print will be printed, inspected and signed by me personally and will ship to you flat on archival acid free foam core in a clear archival bag ready for the matt and frame of your choice. This is a strictly limited special edition of 50 prints to celebrate the appointment as a Moab Master and once orders are filled there will be no more. Each print investment is being offered at the special price of $500 plus delivery. Please contact Philip Kulpa at the Source Photographica Gallery in Brighton for any enquiries or to place your order. Philip can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone on +61 3 9530 6059. Don’t miss your chance to own a special limited edition GOLD Award APPA print!
