The first two batches of files have gone to the printers now for proofs!
The final batch is in production now and will be with the printers on Monday, along with any adjustments required as a result of viewing the proofs.
The amount of work involved in preparing the images for an exhibition like this is prodigious and easily overlooked by the viewer. I have been fortunate to have the expert Photoshop skills and experience of John Slater of The Photo Workshop (see website here) as my Retoucher to help me make the prints and layouts as good as they need to be. If you need to learn Photoshop, John runs excellent courses – details on his website. Between us, I would say that John and I will have put in at least 100 hours of work in Photoshop and InDesign to get the files ready for printing. On several occasions we have worked late into the night and lost a great deal of sleep. We will both be having a glass of something next week when the final prints are completed, that is for sure.
So my creation is now in the capable hands of Joseph at Big Image Print in Wellington as the next set of hands in the process of bringing the work to life for you to view. Come Opening Day, I will be hoping to sleep at last, although I expect I will find something else to worry about such as whether the wind blowing the work away or something….!
Once the dust has settled from the Kokomai exhibition, I will be producing a limited edition book of colour prints from the work. Details to follow but if you would be interested in getting a copy, please feel free to get in touch below.
Also, if you know of any spaces that might be interested in taking the exhibition after Kokomai has finished, please let me know.
