Digital Transitions PhotoPlus Expo Featured Speaker:

MARTIN AXON – Historical Applications for Digital Photography – October 25 2:00 PM

Martin Axon is a photographer and master analog printmaker with over 50 years of experience printing black & white and color photographs for photographers such as Horst P. Horst, Robert Mapplethorpe, Bert Stern, Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, and Roman Vishniac.

He is perhaps best known for his over 30 years of printing using the Platinum-Palladium process, even collaborating with the Arches paper Mill in 1982 to create the now-famous paper sheet Arches Platine.

Over the last year he has consulted with Digital Transitions to examine the potential of using their Cultural Heritage Instant Capture Film Digitization systems for creating files for printing in historical archival alternative processes. It has quickly become his preferred method of film digitization due to its superior clarity, dynamic range, and a rapid capture times over any previous scanning system, making it a perfect match for digitizing large film archives in high definition and providing robust files for his complex Platinum-Palladium printmaking processes.

His photographs have been exhibited at The Guild Hall Museum, The Photographers Gallery in London, The New Jersey State Museum, and the British Arts Council’s traveling exhibition, and a current exhibition at The Guggenheim Museum displays his platinum works of Robert Mapplethorpe.
