Hahnemühle celebrates the 25th anniversary of its Digital FineArt Paper sponsoring New Irish Works, a support program for artists developed by PhotoIreland. The collaboration will bring to Dublin audiences a selection of contemporary photographic practices as part of PhotoIreland Festival in July 2022. The partnership will provide digital FineArt paper and will contribute towards artists fees.
Regarding the partnership, PhotoIreland’s Director Ángel Luis Gonzalez commented that ‘it is a match made in heaven. On one hand, photographic artists demand the highest of qualities in all their equipment, and more-so when it comes to paper, and Hahnemühle has always been the preferred choice. On the other hand, it acknowledges the important contribution of Hahnemühle to contemporary photographic practices, and to their preservation in public and private collections – something we will evidence during PhotoIreland Festival 2022’.
Hahnemühle UK Marketing Manager Nuala Henry stated that ‘Hahnemühle is delighted to support Irish artists with this poignant initiative by PhotoIreland, and it is exciting to be part of the great moment Irish photography is experiencing. We hope to keep contributing to its excellence with our unique digital FineArt papers’.
PhotoIreland will be working with long-time partner printing studio Inspirational Arts, who have collaborated with PhotoIreland Festival for over a decade, to deliver the finest quality that is expected by contemporary artists. Inspirational Arts were, incidentally, the first printer in Ireland to become evaluated by Hahnemühle and appointed as a Certified Studio for digital fine art printing.
Together with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland, Dublin City Council Arts Office, The Office of Public Works, and other partners to be announced, the next edition of PhotoIreland Festival is set to bring together a one-off opportunity to enjoy the largest project On the History and Practice of Photography in Ireland.
Artists wishing to participate in New Irish Works can find all the details about the open call online and submit their projects by 30th January.
