Tyler Shields (American, b. 1982)

Dye Transfer is a continuous-tone color printing process, and is considered
to be the finest production process in the history of color photographic
printing.Irving Penn, the “Picasso” of photography, is considered the most important 
pioneer in the use of Dye Transfer. Inexplicably in 1994, Eastman Kodak stopped making all materials for this process. For this exhibition, Tyler
Shields tracked down Irving Penn’s master printer, who is one of the
last remaining people in the world with not only the knowledge of the
process, but who also owns a limited cache of Kodak’s original chemicals
and papers. This master printer agreed to use his remaining materials
to produce an extremely limited number of these exclusive Dye Transfer
prints for Tyler Shields. Once all the chemicals have been used, this
process will be gone forever.
