44 Years of Capturing Beauty

Jacob Javits Center NYC at Photo Plus Expo

Robert Farber was invited to showcase a retrospective of his fine art photography in a special way, as dye-infused prints on metal. The exhibition was sponsored by ChromaLuxe and Blazing Editions. This exhibition included a preview of the soon to be released Gallery Editions, Deterioration Series. This unique exhibition / event will also be shown in Los Angeles, Miami, Brussels and Paris.

Sublimation onto metal is a new, cutting edge, way to reproduce an image. Sublimation itself is the process of going from a solid to a gas, back to a solid - skipping the liquid state. The image is first printed onto a transfer paper and then is adhered to pretreated aluminum (other substrates such as tile, wood, or glass are also available). The aluminum and transfer paper are placed into a custom heat press, which is heated to temperatures exceeding 380 degrees Fahrenheit. While being subjected to extreme heat and pressure, the dyes from the transfer paper turn into a gas, are pressed into the surface of the metal, and then solidify into the treated aluminum. As the dyes cool they are permanently infused beneath the surface of the metal substrate.
