I am working with Cannon and Epson Inkjet printers, mainly commercial and some art display work, and have been happy with Photo Rag, that is produced by Haneamuhle and of late Fuji Photo Rag. I have been only using paper on rolls on our big Cannon.
I have a project in hand where I would like to use our Epson 7800 with the K3 Ultrachrome inks. Print size would be about 12x18 optically centered on a sheet of paper .
The originals are Kodachromes from the early to late 50's . I would love to hear any thoughts about cut sheet paper that would work well with the original chromes and the inks of the Epson.
I would be open to any suggestions, I have worked with Arches Arquelle and Platine in cut sheet and will test these with this project ( these papers are not specifically made for inkjet and suck a lot of ink and require a lot of contrast control to make them work , but I think maybe I should also be open to some of the finer cut sheet papers that some of you are using that are dedicated for inkjet printers.
Do any of you remember the difference in look of Kodak colour paper and Agfa from the early 70's , a much more pastel look with Agfa compared to the Kodak.
I think this era in colour , had a feel that I am not seeing with current papers.
Just saw a Fred Herzog show here in Toronto ,the work was from the same era, different Continent but it had this 60's colour feel that I found quite compelling.
Any suggestions on some specific papers, ???
