Our final PPE Artist Signing will be from Jay Fine – make time to arrive at the Hahnemühle booth #655 by noon on October 24 to receive an autographed print from Fine on our Photo Silk Baryta paper – winner of the 2014 TIPA award for “Best Inkjet Photo Paper”!
“One of the most pleasing and surprising things about Photo Silk Baryta was the wide tonal range and soft contrast. A print of a photo taken late in the day of the NYC skyline brought out things in the image I had not noticed before. It’s one of the reasons why I’m printing more than I have in some time.
There’s a sense of satisfaction you get from a great print that is hard to describe but you know it when you feel it.” – Jay Fine
Jay Fine is a New York City fine art photographer and photojournalist, based in Lower Manhattan. In 2003, after moving to Battery Park City he began an ongoing project to document his surroundings, focusing on New York Harbor, recording the sublime beauty and dramatic weather, as well as the architecture and people of Lower Manhattan. From a vantage point forty stories above the city, he could find drama or news by looking out his window. Everything from dramatic electrical storms, to the errant use of Air Force One flying around the Statue of Liberty.
His work has appeared in publications and on television worldwide including National Geographic, Popular Photography, New York Daily News and on NBC News and the BBC.
His most recent exhibit (August 2012) was a a seventy foot-long series of seven transparencies, which were installed in Lower Manhattan as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Arts for Transit program. The exhibit ‘Edge of Manhattan’ was on display for over a year in the Bowling Green subway station and was preceded by one man shows at the New York Mercantile Exchange and the Kim Foster Gallery in Chelsea, New York.
Fine regularly posts new work on Facebook and his Flickr site. To see more of his work please visit his site at flickr.
Fine is represented by the Kim Foster Gallery in New York (for his fine art prints) and by the Caters News Agency in the UK for his photojournalism.
