Welcome to the ChromaLuxe Gallery at Photokina 2016. We have assembled here an eclectic mix of images printed on ChromaLuxe aluminium panels. We hope to show you the possibilities for this exciting media and why so many fine artists and professional photographers are now choosing it to display their work at exhibitions and to sell art prints.

With David Bowie sadly dying earlier this year, the images from Duffy’s original shoot hold a special place in our hearts. And Gered Mankowitz’s images represent a special era in the music business. It’s great to see how these original images taken on film can be printed digitally with such stunning results.

There are many famous photographers shown in this gallery, alongside award winners and a few images selected purely because they showed off ChromaLuxe at its finest. These photographers have chosen ChromaLuxe as the ultimate method of presenting their images.

Another wall tries to show the importance of photography as a means to changing how the world behaves. Photographers who risk their lives bringing important issues to the public attention, and although it may take a generation, change can happen.

The DDiArte Falling Paris image is a true work of art, assembled over a period of 3 months from very many carefully posed studio shots. If you wonder how the horses were photographed, then let’s just say they were rolling playfully in their field and the photographer caught them at just the right moment; not luck, but skill. Good photography means being in the right place at the right time. Our New York images are assembled from up to 30 different super high resolution images using a unique UHDR2 (Ultra High Dynamic Range and Resolution) system. The detail is extraordinary for an image this size.

STAUD STUDIOS’ wall represents the ultimate in automotive publicity photography. Beautiful cars in beautiful settings shot perfectly with precision technical competence. And the Landscape wall is a testament to those photographers who travel to the furthest points of the world, often in harsh conditions, to show us the beauty of the world we occupy. We thank all the photographers, artists and labs for joining and participating in this project. Your enthusiasm and support is truly humbling.


DDiArte Portuguese artists, ZÊ Diogo and Diamantino Jesus, set up DDiArte in 1999, as a painting workshop where they worked together painting on canvas. In 2003, after several experiences in the field of digital photography, they discovered the ideal means to express their creativity – digital photography, artistically touched up. Their main source of inspiration is mythology, modern themes or others that are the simple fruit of our creativity. Their images remain full of details, of symbols, of images, an attempt to captivate, but mainly, as an attempt to stimulate critical thought in viewers. While some of their work can be seen as satirical in a globalized world, yet still full of differences, other examples can be seen as purely scenic, to be contemplated at will. If some shout out against discrimination, at the same time they pay indelible homage to beauty.

Music Wall 6 images from two photographers who specialized in the creation of iconic images during the 1960’s and 1970’s, with a homage to David Bowie who sadly died earlier this year.

Duffy Brian Duffy has been called “the man who shot the sixties”. He was referred to simply as “Duffy”. Duffy’s work covered all the top glossy fashion magazines and publications such as Vogue and Elle. Duffy is famed for the iconic photos he took of David Bowie for the album cover of ‘Aladdin Sane’. In addition to his fashion work, album covers and portraiture work, he won awards for his creative work in advertising. He remains one of the few photographers to have been commissioned to shoot three Pirelli calendars in 1965 and 1973 and a third session for the Pirelli Cinturato truck tyre. He abruptly ceased trading in a fit of pique in 1979 and attempted to burn much of his work. Fortunately, a neighbour called the council which insisted he put the

fire out. His negatives remained in the family home until 2007 when his son persuaded Duffy to re-examine the archive. In 2010 Duffy passed away, but not before picking up the camera again and taking a few more captivating portraits. Since his passing, his image of David as ‘Aladdin Sane’ has been on the world stage with the current V&A Museum exhibition, ‘David Bowie Is’, and he was awarded the accolade as one of the top 100 photographers’ photographer.

Gered Mankowitz FRPS Gered Mankowitz’s career as a professional photographer was truly launched in 1963 in London as the ‘Swinging 60’s’ took shape. An early shoot of singer Marianne Faithfull, who was managed by Stone’s manager Andrew Loog Oldham, led to him becoming the official photographer for the Rolling Stones on the 1965 USA tour. He continued working with the band until they broke away from their manager in 1967. Through the 60’s, Gered continued in the music world working with many other major artists including Jimi Hendrix, Free, Traffic, The Yardbirds and Soft Machine. In to the 70’s with Slade, Suzi Quatro, Elton John, Kate Bush, Eurythmics, Duran Duran and many others. Over the years he has had numerous hugely successful exhibitions around Europe and in the USA based on his extensive archive. He has also published several books. Gered was producing photography for the music industry up to quite recently and completed sessions with

The Hives, Snow Patrol, The Duke Spirit, The Bravery, Blondelle, BMD and most recently Patrick Wolf and Ren Harvieu. In 2007 Gered moved to Cornwall in the beautiful South West of England and now spends most of his time working with his archive and on his own projects as well as teaching. His images printed on ChromaLuxe were a major part of the recent “Exhibitionism: The Rolling Stones” show which was on for 4 months at London’s Saatchi Gallery.

Colin Prior FRPS Colin Prior is one of the world’s most respected landscape photographers. Born in Glasgow, his proximity to the Scottish Highlands shaped his passion for the outdoors and fostered his interest in photography. His photographs capture sublime moments of light and land, which are the result of meticulous planning and preparation and often take years to achieve. Prior is a photographer who seeks out patterns in the landscape and the hidden links between reality and the imagination. Commissioned by British Airways for four years, he has traveled to over forty countries throughout the world and lived alone for extended periods of time in the wild just to understand his subject. He has written six books, including The World’s Wild Places, which was published internationally. He is currently working on a

four-year project in the Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan and nearer home on a new book entitled, The Living Mountain. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and President of the Association for the Protection of Rural Scotland.

Popp Hackner For almost two decades now, Verena Popp-Hackner and Georg Popp have made their living as professional landscape photographers, roaming the planets wild places, always on the lookout for fresh and exciting views. Based in Vienna, Austria, they run their own image library and a small photo-gallery. Photographing their home country Austria, with all its culture and nature, canoeing its rivers or lakes and hiking the Alps is their profession, but their photographic “backyard” includes the rest of the planet as well. They use analog large format cameras almost exclusively for their landscape work, shooting on 4x5” sheet film, to provide clients with the maximum of print-sharpness and details and unsurpassed clarity and depth of focus.

Their work has been published in magazines, books and calendars all around the globe, has been used for advertising and presented in many exhibitions. They have published six coffee-table format photo books.

Wall: Photography can change the world Here we feature 4 images demonstrating how photography can help change the world to a better place. Jean-Pierre Laffont’s series on Child Labour made the world sit up and take notice. The image of children working at a brick factory was widely published and became an iconic image. Guido Sterkendries’ images of life in a tiny shanty town (which houses 80 people!) positioned right in front of a government building caused international outrage.

Guido Sterkendries Guido Sterkendries is an eco-explorer and photographer who has travelled extensively around the Amazon. He captures his vision of Amazonia and the diversity of colours, shapes and sizes with low light lenses, leaving no stone unturned in his quest to record the region’s diversity. His remarkable expeditions have earned him a well-deserved reputation as one of the world’s most committed and indefatigable photographers with an eye for purity. An approach that is completely in sync with the vision and the needs of the natives of South America and their habitat. But Sterkendries felt that instead of limiting himself to merely producing outstanding natural imagery he should also take a critical look at the ecological, economic and cultural problems that Amazonia currently faces. He is passionate about the green lungs of our

planet and feels that it is his mission to challenge the myopic short-term responses of politicians around the world to a changing climate and its rapidly shrinking biodiversity. According to Sterkendries we can bring about a change together. Guido is considered a ground-breaking independent voice, sharing his vision and that of the Amazonian Indians of a dominant Western world in his confrontational, innovative and unique project, called “Battle for Life”.

Jean-Pierre Laffont Jean-Pierre Laffont was born in Algeria in 1935. After serving in the French Army as a Commanding Officer in the Algeria War, he returned to Paris, where he began assisting photographers Sam Levin and Choura, renowned for their photographs of celebrities and movie stars. Laffont started to work in portraiture and fashion photography, and was hired as special photographer on movie sets for MGM in Rome.

Photo News agency, which became the largest news agency in the world. From 1970-1980, he made a major reportage on child labor throughout the world. The photographs he brought back were the most eloquent and cruel testimonials. Jean-Pierre has won the most prestigious awards in photojournalism for this series, including first prize in the World Press General Picture category.

In 1965 he arrived in the USA and began his career as a photojournalist. In 1970 he and his wife opened the U.S. office of Gamma Press Images agency. Laffont covered historical events, such as the Civil Rights Movement, the Race Riots, the Vietnam War, the peace movement, as well as the gay and feminist movement.

Jean-Pierre Laffont currently resides in New York with his family.

In 1973, Laffont was one of the co-founders of Sygma

Phil van Duynen Having graduated summa com laude from ENSAV in 1985, he quickly became successful as an image creator in Brussels and Paris. In 1989 he shifted to advertising where he sharpened his passion for image through his work as an art director and creative director, having been many times awarded nationally and internationally. A retrospective of his advertising work took place in ‘Seed Factory’, Brussels in 2002. In 2004 he went to picture the American West and the East of China, work that ended as solo-show in the Fotomuseum-Antwerp in 2006.

Hans Withoos Dutch photographer and artist, Hans Withoos’ career spans more than twenty years in which he combined his commissioned work with his autonomous work. After graduating from the Art Academy, he specialized in fashion and commercial video/photography and his clients range from big corporate companies to small non-profit organizations. His fascination is with beauty in all its aspects, but the beauty of suffering specifically as seen in his series Nocturnal Delight based on the seven deadly sins. Hans Withoos’ photography is set in the world of abundance and artifice–the smell of decadence wafts towards the viewer. It is a world simultaneously familiar and different. In Withoos’ exaggerated scenes, the figures crowding the images become archetypes, and the

viewer is overcome by a sense of alienation. The work is full of layered, staged images with idiosyncratic aesthetics. Sometimes the photographs evoke emotions related to suffering, sensuality and hidden oppressiveness; at other times the images depict the complete opposite and are deliberately emotionless. The artist describes his oeuvre: The images don’t show a critical perspective, but rather an observant one.

Nic Gaunt Influenced by Helmut Newton, Salvador Dali and Bob Carlos Clarke. Nic creates images in the viewfinder and then refines them post production to create highly finished pieces. Strong control of the image within his work is ultimately important, from lighting to composition to message.

Nic currently splits his time between Hong Kong and London, shooting for fashion magazines and advertising, whilst exhibiting his art worldwide. Nic’s end goal is to produce pragmatic works, which are both thought provoking and aesthetically stimulating to the viewer.

His work is unique, standing alone ultimately in a field of his own vision. He is keen that every image is created through new thought, and not just manufactured to the same repetitive styles. Using the subjects as a conduit to an end, the imagery often poses a surreal yet realistic overtone with an underlying sexual tension.

Filled with semiotic discourse and hidden rhetoric, they are often a comment on today’s society and its inner complexities.

STAUD STUDIOS STAUD STUDIOS are the most highly respected company in the world of automotive advertising. 30 years of experience with the biggest and most demanding automotive brands have built and shaped their work to achieve the same level of performance they find today in the industry. With the attentive eye of a photographer and the precision of an engineer, STAUD STUDIOS develops and nurtures brands in their entirety. STAUD STUDIOS handles strategy, conception and execution at all the interfaces that brands have today with their various target groups. René Staud, founder of the company, says, “We know as much about cars as we do about communication. We think cars, we speak cars, we are cars. In times when customers do not expect commercials, but relevant

content, it takes true automotive understanding and appreciation to live up to the expectations of a brand’s customers and fans. We fulfill these expectations with passion and focus of a kind seldom found in a communications agency.” The images you can see in the ChromaLuxe Gallery are testament to their creativity. René Staud’s new book “MILESTONES”, a limited edition of 125 copies printed on fine art paper, will be launched at Photokina.

André Wagner André Wagner was born in Burgstaedt, Germany. He was a graffiti artist from 1994 to 2000 and he started his training as a photographer in 1999. What drives him is not the traditional documentary “clinging” of photography, but exploring their creative boundaries. The technical implementation is generally only a means to achieve his artistic goal. The goal of the artist is always to take what is invisible to the eye and make it visible (and sensible) through his work. Each of his series, each of his motives, requires a different approach that allows Wagner to hold the sensation in the particular situation in his pictures. This form of “magic” to create a new reality for himself and the viewers of his works, exerts not only a constant fascination for him, but is also the motivation for his entire

artistic career. André has already won many prestigious awards with his works and he regularly exhibits internationally in galleries and institutions. Diverse catalogs and books are published regarding his work. André Wagner finds his motifs while traveling around the globe, but the center of his life is, however, Berlin.

LAZARUS “It was makeup that led me to photography” says Lazarus Jean-Baptiste, a world class makeup artist turned cityscape photographer. Having worked for nearly all the top magazines in the fashion world, Lazarus decided that he had done everything he wanted to do in makeup, it was time to pick up his camera again. He dedicated 2013 to mastering digital photography and post processing. “I believe the lessons and skills from 21 years in makeup are exactly what make my approach to photography unique. My lenses and cameras have replaced my makeup brushes and beauty products. The New York skyline is my supermodel now.” says Lazarus. “Now, I walk up to a beautiful location and reimagine it with the streets wet from rain, cumulus clouds in the sky, and the sun at a 170-degree angle during the golden hour. My challenge is to make sure I am there to capture it.

UHDR2 (Ultra High Dynamic Range and Resolution) is how Lazarus describes his photography. His “Haute-Couture” images are typically multiple-frame, multiple-shot images in ridiculously high resolution. The “Haute-Couture” is for those with huge amounts of wall space and for corporate clients as art installations. “When all is said and done my images are about making you stop. Stop and take a look at the beautiful things around you. Stop and enjoy a moment that will never happen again. Stop is the gift of photography to me and the gift I pay forward to you.” Images: NYCANDI Web site: http://lazarus2020.com Printed by: Wilcovak, Hoogeveen, Netherlands http://www.wilcovak.nl


Pino Settanni PINO SETTANNI, or ‘pugliese di Roma’ as he liked to be called, is a difficult photographer to define. As a pure photographer he is known for Ritratti in Nero (Portraits in Black), Tarocchi (Tarot), Vizi Capitali (Deadly Sins) and famous portrait series. Equally well known are his graphics-painting artworks, started in 80’s with Voligrammi (Flight Charts) and from 1995, Archeologia del Futuro (Archaeology of the Future), an amazing series, a mix between painting and photography, that envisages how photo prints might be viewed in the far distant future. Since 1998 he shot images for the Italian Army calendars with portraits of characters and reportages of soldiers in Italy, Bosnia, Kosovo, Albania and Afghanistan ...

Turning the Millenium, Settanni approaches information technology and through Photoshop reworks new images or selected photographs from his huge archive. In 2001, he published on his web site “an online book” visited by thousands of enthusiasts and insiders. His last book: La Memoria Le Immagini (The memory images), shows forty years of his work through a long interview and 150 photographs. He had many solo and group exhibitions and publications on the most important issues in the world. His trusted printer is NEWLAB in Brescia, Italy.

Paul Brouns “The buildings I look at, reveal themselves to me not as mere places to live. I am fascinated by the abstract qualities of architecture, of which I testify by capturing and creating, what I call Urban Tapestries.” Geometric patterns, rhythm and lines are the driving forces in his art; the interplay between ‘realistic’ registration and geometric abstraction. Apart from its functions (housing, office space, contemplation), architecture also has a graphical, abstract dimension. Looking at his work, you will still recognize facades and windows, but at the same time you may perceive these compositions as carefully designed tapestries. This is why he started referring to his work as Urban Tapestries. They are the result of observing his native Dutch city life and at the same time they are abstract patterns.

One of the images on show is called “Synaesthesia” which is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. Paul says; “The main reason for me to create is sharing that sense of happiness with the rest of the world. Therefore, it is my mission to enrich people’s lives by introducing beautiful tapestries to their eyes.” Images: Synaesthesia, Paradise of reflections, Balcony fiesta Web site: http://paulbrouns.com Gallery: http://www.fotogalerieutrecht.nl Printed by: Wilcovak, Hoogeveen, Netherlands http://www.wilcovak.nl


Noortje Palmers Noortje is a young, up and coming photographer based in Antwerp, Belgium. She works with major Belgian magazines, advertising agencies and has created an impressive portfolio of her own images which have been shown at exhibitions in Gent and Antwerp. Whether it’s a neighbour, the King of the Belgians, a little chick, a professional model or a sailor that gets in front of her lens, the subjects always surprise themselves and the audience! Her powerful use of colour is dramatic and makes ChromaLuxe an ideal print medium for her work. Images: Duck face, 3 girls in pool, Girl with bear Web site: http://noortjepalmers.be

Jay Maisel After studying painting and graphic design at Abraham Lincoln High School with Leon Friend, Cooper Union, and Yale with Josef Albers, Jay Maisel began his career in photography in 1954. While his portfolio includes the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Miles Davis, he is perhaps best known for capturing the light, color, and gesture found in everyday life. This unique vision kept him busy for over 40 years shooting annual reports, magazine covers, jazz albums, advertising and more for an array of clients worldwide. Some of his commercial accomplishments include five Sports Illustrated swimsuit covers, the first two covers of New York Magazine, the cover of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue (the best-selling jazz album of all time), twelve years of advertising with United Technologies, and a litany of awards.

Since he stopped taking on commercial work in the late ’90s, Jay has continued to focus on his personal work. He has developed a reputation as a giving and inspiring teacher as a result of extensive lecturing and photography workshops throughout the country. He also continues to sell prints, which can be found in private, corporate, and museum collections.

Panos Kokkinias Panos Kokkinias’ photographs are all meticulously yet discreetly staged. In his landscapes or cityscapes, improbable, bizarre often uncanny scenarios unfold in which the psychological relationship of human beings to their environs is the conceptual point of departure. Kokkinias keeps a physical distance from his subjects and sets up incidents or situations which are unobtrusively positioned in the picture frame. Initially it would appear that the landscape is of primary concern but upon closer observation one will find his work is clearly anthropocentric. Solitary, enigmatic, mostly diminutive figures almost invariably inhabit his pictures; figures that seem to be at odds with the world around them.

found in the work of Gregory Crewdson, for example, but the artifice in Kokkinias’ photographs is constructed in a less conspicuous way and there is not as much a sense of drama, but more one of pathos and existential angst.

Stephen Harlan In the early 1980s, Stephen and his wife Martha relocated to California where his love for the ocean continued and grew. His artistic style expanded too, with images of the southwest and several other areas of inspiration becoming a part of his portfolio.

During these years, Stephen was commissioned to produce custom images including nautical, southwestern and abstract topics. He was recognized as a leader in digital imagery and placed “Best of Show” in important exhibits in Los Angeles and across Southern California.

Stephen’s portfolio of abstract images also grew as increased interest and requests from California and West Coast collectors surfaced.

In 2008, the Harlans moved to Wilmington, North Carolina. Today, the HarlanArt studio is located in Carolina Beach, where the Atlantic Ocean and Intercoastal Waterway serve as a constant source of stimulation for future work.

Stephen’s work was recognized by many, and his work adorned the covers of national magazines that ran the gamut from commercial, industrial, and musical amphitheater promotions to trendsetting publications such as AV/Video.

Hans Hiltermann Back to basics. After 20 years of advertising photography, Hans wanted to go back to basics which he found in the authenticity of portrait photgraphy.

ChromaLuxe, A new standard in prints on metal ChromaLuxe is a new art medium with unparalleled quality for photos and artwork. The inks are infused into specially coated aluminium plates. The resulting prints take on a magical luminescence with an almost 3-dimensional effect. Because the image is infused INTO the surface and not on it, the durability and life of the prints is unsurpassed. Chromaluxe HD Panels • 1.2mm Aluminium plates • Lightweight, making them easy to hang and transport Stunning Colour • Exceptional colour gamut range • Colours that really stand out giving an almost 3dimensional feel to the images Durable • ChromaLuxe HD prints are unbelievably durable • Scratch resistant • Whiteboard pens can simply be wiped off • Permanent marker pens and even paint can be removed! • 100% Water and chemical resistant Long Life • Recent tests by world renowned Wilhelm Imaging Research give ChromaLuxe a print permanence rating of 65 which is 3x greater than leading conventional photo papers.

Finishes • White Gloss is by far the most popular and dramatic of our finishes, it is an excellent finish for any subject, especially landscape or nature images, flowers, sports action photos, cars, water, etc. White Gloss surface is also available on MDF panels. • White Semi-Gloss has a great satin look that offers the color brilliance and punch of the full gloss but with reduced reflection. • For portrait work, weddings or anytime surface reflection is a concern, the White Matte finish can be a wise choice. This surface provides a rich, smooth finish where colors can come alive in a subtler way than the gloss. • The same coating but without the white base, is called Clear-Gloss, allowing the natural silver of the aluminium to shine through. It is a special effect that works really well with high contrast black and white images, and images with strong colours and a fair amount of white area. • Just as with the white-coated-range, the clear range is also available in semi-gloss, and matte.
