Greg is a good friend who over the years has been an avid and enthusiastic adopter of all things digital. In addition to photography, we share a certain, well, shall we say, “zest” for great wine and great food. But we also share a real passion for photography – B&W photography.

I have just made, for an exhibit to open Thursday, May 19th at the Ordover Gallery in Solana Beach, California, the most beautiful set of color prints that I’ve ever made, using a new EPSON 44″ printer and the new inkset announced today (May 10th).

The boom in digital photography has sparked a backbiting squabble over the longevity of pictures made on home printers.

Wilhelm Imaging Research, a testing lab in Grinnell, Iowa, that was hired by Hewlett-Packard Co., Seiko Epson Corp. and several other printer makers, recently publicly criticized Staples’ top-of-the-line photo paper as a “disaster,” saying photos printed on it fade rapidly from exposure to ozone pollution.
