This course is an advanced and in-depth exploration of Color Management, ICC Profiles and Photoshop as it pertains to archival digital photographic printmaking. We will explore different paper types, surfaces, manufacturers and the importance of the paper to the content of the work being presented and the size at which the work is shown.

Students will be introduced to large format printers and printing with generous support of Ilford photographic paper.
