A unique photo installation at the summer-long Les Recontres d’Arles photography festival in Arles, France is helping boost participation in the Inside Out global art project that TED-prize-winning artist JR announced in March. JR is challenging people worldwide to publicly post black-and-white photographic portraits that reveal and share their untold stories. At the photo installation at Les Rencontres d’Arles, festival-goers can have their portraits taken and printed while they wait. The portraits at the festival are being output on an HP Designjet Z6200.
The Brighton Photo Biennial 2010 in England opened Saturday, October 2 and runs through Sunday, November 14. Presenting international artists from a range of cultural backgrounds, the Brighton Photo Biennial is committed to facilitating debate on photography in order to reach the widest possible audiences, and to create opportunities for participation and engagement. Internationally renowned photographer Martin Parr served as guest curator for the Biennial 2010. In the first in a series of reports, Philippe Serenon highlights some of the innovations and extraordinary art that are making this year’s event so remarkable.
With just a few weeks to go to the opening of Ariel Carlomagno’s ‘Latidos de México’ exhibition in Mexico City, the photographer describes the results he is getting from the new HP Designjet Z6200 Photo Printer and how the warm tones characteristic of his work are faithfully reproduced. HP is contributing to the exhibition by providing free use of the printer at one of its trial user sites in the federal capital, along with printing material for the exhibition’s 120 large-format prints.
