Barack Obama’s fine intimate smile, Putin’s frightening aura …
Captivating, touching, glorifying are the portraits of the British photographer Platon. He photographed traditionally on film, scans his negatives and retouched his large format exhibition prints to the smallest detail in his New York studio. “Handcraft to handcraft. I use the genuine artist papers manufactured by Hahnemühle to reproduce the finest tones and contrasts” Platon stated on his paper choice.
For big photo shows, collectors and galleries around the world, he prints limited editions on FineArt Pearl, FineArt Baryta and Photo Rag® Baryta.
Celebrities from the world of art, culture and politicians stand on its impressive list of models. His portraits are perfectly staged and yet capture the essence, the character or the one of a kind attitude of the people portrayed.
We are proud to manufacturer Platon´s paper of choice developed by us and now world market leading. In the video, he gave us an insight into his work and the digital print on Hahnemühle Digital FineArt papers.
