Steve Harries' new book 'Studio Botanical'
By Andrew Edwards & Luke Bird, 17 July 2017
Studio Botanical is a new publication from acclaimed photographer & filmmaker Steve Harries. We've built up a strong relationship with Steve over the years. So when he came to us with his beautiful hand prints, polaroids and concept we were honoured to be asked to be a part of the project.
Offering a series of one on one sessions allowed us to understand the artist's vision and provide an expeditious and comprehensive service.
As part of our Pre-Press service, we drum-scanned Steve's darkroom prints, and polaroids then made small tweaks in post production at the Hempstead May London studio. To ensure the work would be replicated in its full glory at the point of press, we provided proofing of the book spreads and photographs, adjusted and profiled to the different paper types used within the book.
Steve wisely chose to collaborate with one of Europe's most respected print presses, Optimal Media in Germany. Hempstead May accompanied Steve to oversee the final print stages at Optimum's impressive print space - A satisfying end to a brilliant project.
Studio Botanical by Steve Harries runs throughout August at Webber Gallery, W1T 1PE. To accompany the book, there are also beautiful Handmade C-Type prints available for purchase.steveharries.cominstagram.com/steveharrieswebberrepresents.com/artists/steveharries
