Epson supports photographer Steve McCurry in Rome

Steve McCurry has chosen Epson to support his new exhibition in Italy

Featuring the reproduction of his greatest photos, including the famous portrait of the Afghan girl, the exhibition is a celebration of an extraordinary, 30 year journey.

10th January 2012 - Until April 29, 2012, Steve McCurry, one of our century's great masters of photography and winner of several World Press Photo Awards, will be exhibiting at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome. Featuring over 200 photographs taken during more than 30 years of his extraordinary life as a photographer and reporter, it includes some of McCurry's most iconic images, like the famous portrait of the Afghan girl with green eyes. In addition, the exhibition also offers the opportunity to see a selection of his Italian photographs; a tribute to Italy and the result of his stays in numerous cities and regions, from the Veneto to Sicily.

Steve McCurry has been using Epson technology for several years in his New York studio and chose Epson to print more than 50 of his photos especially for the exhibition. Working alongside print shop Bern Art Studio in Varese, McCurry and Epson spent many months painstakingly studying proofs, testing, colour adjustments and fine editing right up to the final prints which, as McCurry himself says, allow him ''to see the same colours and feel the same sensations'' he remembers when taking the shots.

To recount the process, the exhibition will include screenings of a video called Epson presents Steve McCurry, Making of - 2011, where, in addition to McCurrys photographs, Epson technology, inks and papers take a starring role. The video is available on the following link http//www.stevemccurryroma.it/allestimento.phplangeng

We have a long history of collaboration with photographers'', said Martin Johns, Market Development Manager, Pro Graphics, Epson UK. ''We are proud that Steve McCurry uses Epson technology to capture his extraordinary images and we are happy to support him in his new exhibition in Italy.
