How printing can benefit today’s artists
Cheryl Walsh believes that photographers printing their own work is the most important topic in digital photography today and explains why and how she maintains full control over all her fine art prints by printing them herself on her Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 printer on Canson® Infinity fine art digital papers in sizes up to 40x60 inch.
“When I learned to print, that changed everything”, says Cheryl Walsh. “When it came time to choose a printer of course I was going to go with Canon, a brand I have always used and a company that was interested in taking care of me from capture to print, from beginning to end.”
How the choice of fine art papers helps to create a unique artistic signature
While the choice of the printer is important, the choice of paper is equally important to Cheryl. She says, “I’m using the best equipment, I have the best cameras, I have the best printer, and of course I want the best paper. Canson® Infinity fulfills all of my needs to create my artwork. It’s really unique, special paper.”
As each Canson® Infinity paper has its particular characteristics, Cheryl keeps this in mind from the moment she takes each photo, effectively creating her artistic signature through the choice of paper associated with a specific image. “I know which Canson® Infinity paper I’m going to print on as I take the image. The texture of the paper, the weight, the feel is as important to me as the image itself”, ends Cheryl Walsh.

About Canson® Infinity
Looking back on a long history in the field of photography, today Canson® is the last pioneering photographic paper manufacturer that is still in business!
In 1865, Canson® filed and acquired an international patent for the improvement of albumen papers, one of the first processes for the production of photographic paper to be developed at the time. This patent consisted of the improvement of the final rendering of the image, while avoiding the costly gold toning process generally practiced when performing the original process.
Today, Canson® retains its spirit of innovation and combines centuries of experience with cutting edge technology in the manufacture of its paper. Canson® favors the use of natural minerals and the purest of materials, without optical brighteners, to provide you with printing materials that are resistant to aging. The papers and canvases within the Canson® Infinity range for photography and digital art publishing deliver unparalleled and durable printing results, as well as optimal chromatic rendering with a large colour gamut, a strong D-Max and excellent image sharpness.
