The 2011 Australian Photography and Gallery Compendium has just been released. This high quality fine art book is made using the finest production techniques with pre-press production by expert colour managers and designers. The reproduction of detail, colour and depth is exceptional and is the next best thing to actually viewing one of the fine art prints. The book is bound in linen with a screen printed silver letter dust jacket and includes a bookmark ribbon. At the close of each year, The Compendium accepts photographic artists who exhibited in the year, represented by a defining image of their contemporary work in a collectable fine art format. The Compendium aims year on year to build a record of contemporary art photography and galleries.
This is the inaugural edition of this new compendium and I am pleased to say it includes my Gold Award Winning APPA print and World Extreme Environment Photograph of the year peoples choice award ‘Blue Berg’ which was photographed near the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon in Iceland last year. Strictly Limited Editions of this print are available for purchase form Source Photographica in Melbourne. 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.
