As part of this year’s European Month of Photography, Niels Borch Jensen Gallery & Editions show a gruop exhibition investigating the medium of photogravure, offering a survey of its spectrum of conceptual possibilities.

About

Photogravure is one of the oldest and most haptic ways of transferring a photo to a piece of paper: A photopositive is brought onto a printing plate by exposing its light-sensitive material through a finely rasterized film, thereby creating microscopic indentations in the plate’s surface. Depending on their depth, these indentations hold different amounts of ink during the printing process, thus allowing for a more extensive colour gradation than any other printing technique. Niels Borch Jensen Editions have been working with photogravures since the early 1990s in order to accommodate contemporary artists’ desire to include photographic material into their work.
