I viewed the Pete Turner exhibit at the George Eastman house in Rochester today. I urge anyone who can visit to do so (ends Feb 4). Absolutely remarkable prints and display; all were printed on an inkjet (Epson 3800/luster).
Anyone know if this exhibit will travel? If it does, I hope it makes a stop in Minneapolis.
I last saw a Pete Turner exhibit back in the late seventies when he had an exhibit at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. This was close to the time that Cibachrome started to come on the market, but the prints at this show were Type -C prints from his 35mm Kodachromes. Mr. Turner was at the exhibit the day I went and dicovered that at that time he had 8x10 internegs made by a lab in New York(Berkley K&L I believe) and the prints were made from them. The prints were large, bold in color and just terrific to view. Convinced me on the spot that you could get quality from 35mm. Remember, this was back in the seventies, and unless you had a 'Blad or a view camera, you couldn't do anything of "quality" with a 35mm. Photographers like Turner, Jay Maisel and Eric Meola changed that.
