Visual Arts Journal Publication

New York City, April 10, 2014; I am extremely honored to announce that six of my photographs were recently published in the ‘Visual Arts Journal’ (VAJ) spring 2014, in a color commentary regarding my group exhibition along with eight other very talented artists represented by the SVA Galleries at the 2013 Miami Project art fair.

For more information please see the following blog title: Miami Project Recap

Moreover, the publication’s layout was flawless, beautifully designed, and in my opinion the flow from page to page was poetic. I am very satisfied with the spreads’ design to say the least. Its minimalistic quality uses white space as part of the design, and so it gives great importance to my photographs. 

I would like to thank the following people;  Ilona Szwarc, Mark De Wilde, Cassandra Levine, Jocelyne Gilead, Anna Beeke, Wyatt Mills, Frederick Paxton and Bradford Kessler for participating in this successful show. Last but not least, a special thanks to SVA Galleries’ project manager Dan Halm and team Miranda Pierce and Tyson Skross for organizing and coordinating such a professional show and VAJ’s editor Greg Herbowy for considering my documentary style photographs a perfect fit for the outstanding color commentary, “Behind the Booth: An inside Look at SVA’s Miami Project Installation.”

Rochester Institute of Technology Friends Reunion

Calumet Gallery, New York City, February 27, 2014; Book launch, “Color Management & Quality Output” by Tom Ashe received a warm welcome by the photography community. The location for this event could not have been better, since the Calumet Gallery currently has great photographs from the exhibition “Natural Selection” on display. And in regards to this art work, Mr. Ashe’s color management teaching was a key component on its photographic output.

In conclusion, the event turned from a book signing to a big party with music, food and libations. 

It was a fantastic night of abundant joy and friendship, to see event images please click here!

About the Book

Color Management & Quality Output is divided into two sections. The first section is on color and color management. It is meant to give photographers a background on how color works and then how color is reproduced from capture to display to print. This section also looks at how color is managed in applications like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. The second section deals with different types of output, like inkjet, photographic digital C-print, and CMYK printing presses. Then we look at how you can optimize your output from re-sizing and sharpening to framing and finishing your prints. In the end, it is about helping photographers to feel in control of faithfully producing their artistic vision to the printed page or iPad screen.
