Each month we
present a body of work from a premier artist with whom we have collaborated
closely in the creation of fine art prints.
artist for the month is Jay Tyrrell. An avid photographer for decades, Jay returned to the world of printmaking in the late nineties when he saw that the improvements in digital printing would enable him to achieve his goal of creating very large format prints. Shooting with a Hasselblad medium format and Linhof 617 camera allows him to use large drum scans to create startlingly sharp prints up to 8 feet in length.
Jay has worked with us over the years to drum scan all of his film and to do a wide range of prints including Lightjet, Epson, Piezography and canvas. We even built his website for him!
By day, Jay is a bond trader in the world of Wall Street. His photography gives him an opportunity to seek refuge from that hectic pace. His photographic work is defined by this search for the antidote to the intensity of modern day life.
Jay shoots a wide range of subjects and has been focusing in the recent years on creating bodies of work based on a single theme. Notable in this regard are the My Backyard series (an amazing portfolio of shots taken from his deck at his house in British Columbia) and the work shown here, Wind Power, a look at the world of wind farms. This work will be featured in the September/October online issue of Lenswork Quarterly.
His work can be seen on his website, jaytyrrell.com.
