It’s not only New Yorkers who experienced the horror and sadness, and incredible human spirit brought forth by the events of 9/11. This event, which has changed the world in both profound and subtle ways, is something that all can relate to. While none who were alive that day will ever forget where they were at the time of the attacks, it is important to keep in mind not only the people who we lost, but those who served above and beyond the call of duty to serve their fellow human beings. This show, held at the Time Warner Center in New York, brings this event and the people involved to the forefront, and is a moving tribute to their spirit and humanity.

We recently attended this exhibition and encourage everyone who has the chance to do so, and hope that the images and words it contains will be brought to more venues so all can experience it. What follows is part of the press material distributed at the opening, where many of the individuals pictured were on hand to share their stories and experiences. It reminded us all why photography and story telling are so important a part of history, and can serve as both remembrance of those who have passed and as honoring those who served. This special exhibition was sponsored by  Nikon, with modern prints sponsored by Adorama. On hand was Mr. McNally who talked about the creation of the work and his heartfelt reflections on the people and subject he so ably depicted. The exhibition is running through Sept, 12, 2011, and we encourage everyone who can see the show to do so. –George Schaub

Moab, a division of Legion Paper, announces the launch of Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260, a new category of fine art inkjet paper featuring an innovative metallic, pearlescent coating.

Designed for photographers seeking to enhance their images with a metallic look, Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 transforms an image into lifelike, almost 3D quality. Black & White images shine on this new paper producing deep dark blacks and ultra-bright highlights.

Reminiscent of the ultra-smooth and slick sandstone surface of the famous bike trail that loops through the desert plains of Moab, Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 captures the original beauty of an image with a metallic pearl enhancement. The paper’s high gloss and unique sheen make this ideal for everyday prints with a twist.

Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 is a micro-porous, pearlescent metallic paper featuring a glossy surface with instant dry time. The scratch-resistant coating produces vivid color reproductions on a medium-weight 12 mil metallic paper stock. The paper is designed to be printed with the Photo Black inksets.
