The fine art photography fair Paris Photo Los Angeles kicked off Thursday night at Paramount Studios with a private dinner hosted by fair director Florence Bourgeois, UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer and Barneys New York.
The Bruce Kapson Gallery space has a great little exhibition of Edward Curtis copper photogravure printing plates. Curtis began work on the printing plates in 1906, for his “North American Indian” series, transferring his glass-plate negatives onto the copper plates, which were then chemically etched. While hundreds of prints were made, only one plate for each image exists. And they are quite stunning, with a warm glow and fine details that made me wish they could somehow be made into jewelry.
