| ||Printing Details |
| For 26 years Solinsky produced his color photographic prints in his studio darkroom. From the start he felt compelled to do his own printmaking, recognizing the print to be the critical final expression of the image. The quality of his photos earned him a reputation as a master printmaker. Beginning in 2001 he made the challenging transition from the darkroom to the digital imaging realm. Today he scans his negatives and prepares his files in Photoshop. Many of the adjustments he makes digitally are similar to those used under the enlarger, but giving greater control and choice than in the darkroom. |
Solinsky prints the finished file after a series of proofs, on either his Epson 7600 or 9800 inkjet printers, using archival pigmented inks on premium papers. The resulting Giclee prints are of outstanding quality, and are unrivaled in their archival character: Wilhelm Imaging Inc. indicates the light fastness of these color prints to be rated at 140-200 years depending on which substrate is used.
The photographs are mounted on archival board, matted and signed in a numbered, limited edition. Editions generally number 200 for a particular image. Prints 8x10 and smaller are not limited.
