All this week at the Photoville NYC festival, Tyler Stableford is hosting a gallery exhibition featuring his work from "The Farmers" project. This Saturday there is a reception which is free and open to the public if you'd like to check out some of the amazing prints from Tyler's latest passion project. This behind the scenes video gives you a look at the photography as well as the printing process involved in making this work come to life.
There is something that is really special that happens when a photographer is able to bond with a real person and capture their emotion and essence in a portrait. The people featured here aren't paid models– they are honest, hard working folks that have a special connection to the land, and Tyler's images do a great job representing that.
Large canvas prints were made for the gallery exhibition, and Tyler and his team talk about the technology used in making these prints in the behind the scenes video above. The project was commissioned by Canon, and it's easy to see how their printers were an important facet to the final presentation.
Below are a few images from the project. Click to view them larger.
