Hahnemühle complements the successful HAHNEMÜHLE PHOTO line with a true Baryta quality. The new Photo Silk Baryta is an excellent alternative to Ilford Gold Fibre Silk. The new Hahnemühle inkjet Baryta will debut in the beginning of March at the Photography Show in Birmingham and WPPI in Las Vegas.
“Photo Silk Baryta will enrich the world famous brand of Hahnemühle with another great paper for photographers and print studios. It has an interesting paper color and a true Baryta layer that guarantees a silky gloss and excellent color gamut for brilliant color and velvety blacks,” says Norbert Klinke, Director Marketing & Sales.
Swedish fashion photographer Per Zennström is also thrilled by Photo Silk Baryta. His concepts are to be seen in crisp, brilliant colors as well as in velvety, deep blacks and gray tones on the sample prints featured in the HAHNEMÜHLE PHOTO sample book. “The fine structure of the paper, the luster of the printed area and the pleasant matte surface in unprinted areas captivates every observer. This paper provides a real wow factor for the eyes and a real Baryta paper ‘touch and feel’ experience for the fingertips.”
The white paper with a smooth surface impresses haptically and visually. The Baryta layer below the ink-receiving coating ensures the look of an analog Baryta paper. The color rendering and color density is impressive. With a grammage of 310 gsm, fine art inkjet prints on the new paper are very presentable. ”
Photo Silk Baryta is perfect for intense, vibrant color prints or black and white motifs with great contrasts from all genres of photography. The paper contains a minimum amount of long-term stable optical brighteners to guarantee an elegant white of the paper. It is an alternative to the Baryta papers without optical brighteners which are available in the Hahnemühle Digital FineArt Collection – if desired” adds Klinke.
Photo Silk Baryta is available from mid-March in sheet and roll formats in the HAHNEMÜHLE PHOTO range.
Introductory kits with printed and unprinted samples will be provided to authorized Hahnemühle dealers and Certified Studios.
