Dear Hahnemühle fans,
The motto of this year´s photokina is 'Imaging unlimited' and it´s how we see it too: At the end of the creative process, it´s the EXPRESSION – in other words the PRINT - that matters. We are pleased to present on our photokina booth, international photographic art as large format fine art prints, artists signings with renowned photographers and of course new Hahnemühle papers and a canvas to turn images into art. Hall 3.1, booth A25 you should note in your photokina calendar. Also if you do not have a ticket yet, join our day pass raffle at the end of this newsletter.
See you in Cologne!
Your Hahnemühle Team
The elegant portfolio box from Hahnemühle with a refined linen look is well suited for high quality presentations and storing of fine art prints. The limited edition box is filled with 50 sheets of FineArt Inkjet paper in A3+ / 13 x 19”. You can choose between the matt Photo Rag® 308, the high-gloss FineArt Baryta and the semi-gloss FineArt Baryta Satin. The black portfolio box is produced from acid-free, archival materials according to the requirements of the “Photographic Activity Test” (PAT) and so a luxury, secure storage possibility for your works of art. The fine textured cover material consists of 100% cotton and is refined through an environmentally friendly acrylic coating which results in a durable and strong surface. Additionally, every box comes with 50 interleaf sheets made of acid-free glassine paper to protect your fine art prints from scratches and abrasion, as well as three Certificates of Authenticity with holograms and one pair of Hahnemühle gloves. The Hahnemühle portfolio box will be launched at photokina and will be available from October from your usual stockist.
"I like the small format and the rounded edges ... Sometimes less is more," says photographer Jens Schlenker about the new Hahnemühle Photo Cards in A5 (14,8 x 21 cm) format. For all genres of photography such as architecture, landscape, portrait, wedding etc. the 'Midi'-Photo Cards are on offer in two shiny varieties Photo Rag® Baryta and FineArt Pearl and in a matt version Photo Rag® 308.
Due to demand from many photographers, three new varieties of our successful range of the smaller photo cards in 10 x 15 cm are available. The subtle Photo Rag® Ultra Smooth and two popular barite paper grades with different gloss - FineArt Baryta (high gloss) and FineArt Baryta Satin (semi gloss).
So matt, satin and glossy photo cards in white or bright white and two sizes round off the Hahnemühle portfolio. On our stand at photokina we will be presenting printed photo cards from different photographers. Pay us a visit!
As new addition to the canvas assortment in our Digital FineArt Collection we present at photokina Art Canvas Smooth, a matt-coated inkjet canvas that distinguishes itself by a uniform and even weave/texture. The natural white canvas excels due to its creamy white tone that is perfectly suitable for art reproductions as well as painting like photo prints. Very deep blacks and vibrant colours lend your artworks an impressive visual appearance. The pleasantly smooth material is pliable and ideal suited for stretcher-frame systems. Discover Art Canvas Smooth at photokina or ask your dealer!
On all days of the show highly acclaimed photographers will join us at the stand to sign one of their favourite motifs and give away the limited prints to Hahnemühle fans. We will welcome Wildlife photographer Joachim Schmeisser, Photo Artist Peter Braunholz, automotive photographer René Staud, music and portrait photographer Martin Häusler, travel photographer Werner Richner and Still Life Photographer Manfred Kriegelstein. For details on our artist signings join us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Hahnemühle Sample Packs featuring different papers and canvases can be purchased for only €5 at our photokina booth. The proceeds will go to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, which is cooperating with the Hasselblad Masters photographer Joachim Schmeisser who teamed up with us for photokina.
