Why would you use an inkjet print of a fine art black & white image for exhibition? I've only seen one show where this was done--Craig Blacklock's Voice Within about 3 months ago--and I was pretty unimpressed with the print quality. The blacks were not black, which pretty much killed the specular highlights. Those prints were made "using PiezoTone, Carbon Sepia inks on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper (a matte-surface, fine art paper)". I thought it was a joke he was asking >$1,000 each for those prints (they were 22"x28" ). I don't mean to bash Blacklock here, since I think the pictures themselves were quite good and I did buy the book.
I'm no luddite, but I would think people would want to show their work to best advantage. Did Blacklock pick the wrong printer, do people like weak prints, or does the emperor have no clothes here?
