Canon Demonstrates Creative Application Of Latest Graphic Art Printers At Art Miami And Context 2013 Fairs

Collaborating with Photographer Robert Farber, Canon to Demonstrate Artistic Capabilities of Large Format and Photo Inkjet Printer Lineups

MELVILLE, N.Y., December 3, 2013 – First-time sponsor of Art Miami, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase its range of printing solutions for the fine arts industry at CONTEXT December 3 – 8 at the Midtown Miami complex. One of the most important annual contemporary art events in the United States, Art Miami showcases the best available artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries in collaboration with 125 of the world’s most respected galleries. Additionally, Art Miami’s sister fair CONTEXT is dedicated to the development and reinforcement of emerging and mid-career, cutting-edge artists.

At the Canon booth #E13, award-winning photographer Robert Farber will showcase a collage of his most impressive images and share insights and personal experiences for working with the output devices. Show attendees can interact with Canon’s latest artistic printing solutions – including the imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer, which features enhanced color management capabilities and the PIXMA PRO-1 printer – a powerful, high-quality professional inkjet printer that produces stunning color prints and dynamic black-and-white images.

“As photographers, we look to tell a story or convey a message through the power of an image,” said photographer Robert Farber. “Canon’s imagePROGRAF and PIXMA PRO printers help showcase this story by delivering high-quality, archival imaging capabilities and creative applications that can enhance moments we’ve captured through our lens. I’m looking forward to engaging with other professionals at Art Miami to hear some of their latest inspirations and discuss the potential that lies with Canon’s fine art printers.”
