Sharon Risedorph

Project:

San Francisco-based photographer Sharon Risedorph came to Hanson Digital to reproduce images from her Abandoned Buildings series that were to be displayed during an Open Studios event. The originals consisted of high quality 4x5 transparencies and negatives that were drum scanned and then printed onto a fine art archival photo rag stock.

Project:

Carbon-based prints were the ideal choice to bring out the subtle gray tones and intense blacks for San Francisco-based photographer Zhou Mi's presentation portfolio. Working closely with the photographer, Hanson Digital created multiple sets of prints for the artist's custom display box, carefully optimizing each of the dramatic black & white digital images for a consistent, harmonious appearance throughout the entire portfolio.

Sean Desmond

Project:

The Tenderloin Project is an ongoing artistic endeavor focused on one of San Francisco’s most marginalized neighborhoods, The Tenderloin. Utilizing the interactive mediums of photography and film, the project’s aim is to capture a compelling and honest portrait of this diverse community.

With living exhibitions that traveled through San Francisco, Atlanta, Miami, New York and Tokyo the project was showcased in a variety of outlets, creating access for a range of viewers to see these intimate, yet objective images, and to understand what life is like in the Tenderloin.

Hanson Digital worked directly with Sean to create not only a full exhibition of the images for the San Francisco show, but also mini portfolios of the shows images.

Barbara Foster

Project:

Over the past ten years, Bay Area printmaker Barbara Foster has addressed the fragility of the landscape in her work, whether in black and white relief prints, Sumi ink drawings or digital Carbon prints on lightweight translucent Japanese papers. Materials, subject, and content are interwoven, illuminating human intervention and the vulnerability of landscapes.

To create large-format exhibition displays for Foster, the artist's digital images were first carefully manipulated for optimum printing using the Carbon process, and then output onto a special Japanese rice paper provided by Foster, in order to closely simulate the effect of her original handmade prints.

Project:

Kathryn Siegler has always been fascinated and obsessed with life from a bygone era. Her involvement with both photography and graphic design had an enormous influence on her art. Using subjects such as old neon signs and old packaging, along with the dimensionality of strong sunlight, she creates mood and depth, and defines the details which give the objects their unique identity.

Hanson Digital has created Betterlight captures, as well as reproduction-quality 4x5 transparencies and drum scans from Siegler's original art. The digital files were carefully color matched to the artwork, and exhibition prints were made from the digital files on archival rag paper.

Keith Hollander

Project:

Originally from New York, Keith Hollander began creating artwork at a very young age. His first formal studies in art were at New York City’s School of Visual Arts where he further developed his relationship with surrealism. Before making his home in San Francisco in 1997, Keith traveled the mountainous regions of the United States seeking inspiration from the landscape and people around. His unique, surrealist style of painting has been exhibited at galleries and exhibits throughout the Bay Area. Keith received the city’s Public Mural Award for his large-scale mural, entitled “Joyous Discoveries,” that overlooked Market Street.

For this current series entitled "Inspiring Faces", Keith turned to Hanson Digital to create high resolution digital files of his large 6ft tall originals. Working closely with the artist to then make exacting reproductions, each image was output on to a hybrid photo rag baryta paper.

Michael Stehr

Project:

Michael Stehr is heavily influenced by his love for the history of art. His landscapes and architectural portraits show his appreciation for a wide range of artistic styles and periods. He is especially inspired by the French painter Camille Corot and early California artists such as Thomas Hill and Edgar Payne, although Stehr's style is still distinctively his own.

For exhibits of his work, Stehr wanted to show high-quality Giclée reproductions alongside of his original pieces to provide an alternative way to purchase his fine art. Hanson Digital photographed Stehr's artwork using a combination of Betterlight scans and archival transparencies, and made reproduction prints using a heavy textured fine art paper. Canvas prints were made as well, which Stehr then stretched and coated himself to give a close resemblance to his originals. The results were not only beautiful, but pushed the boundaries of what could be accomplished with fine art digital printing.
