+3 Viewing Room was founded in April, 2015. Opened by +3 Gallery, it is a new platform to experiencing photography from classical to contemporary, and into the future. It is also an experimental space for contemporary photography. By enabling the accessibility of precious historical archives and promoting cutting-edge images, +3 Viewing Room provides more possibilities for high-quality photographic works and publications.
Recently, +3 Viewing Room joined forces with amanasalto, to ceremoniously introduce publications and platinum print works by world-renowned photographers. amanasalto is a joint venture between a mana in Japan and Salto Ulbeek in Belgium.Platinum- palladium is a traditional printing technique that goes back to the 19th century. In order to produce exceptional works and editions, amanasalto combines traditional platinum-palladium printing methods with innovative techniques developed in- house. Compared to silver prints, platinum prints benefit from an extended tonal-range, more subtle blacks, and a higher definition. Platinum prints are also among the most permanent man-made objects. The platinum metals are more stable than gold, and a platinum image, properly preserved, can last more than 500 years.
amanasalto’s team and state-of-the-art printing facilities incorporate all the skills, materials, and technologies required for the production of exceptional editions. amanasalto’s strength lies in a combination of editorial rigor, the mastery of traditional printing methods, and the continuous development of new printing techniques and production systems.
amanasalto reproduces works selected with internationally renowned photographers and is involved in the planning, production and distribution of editioned prints, print portfolios, and special editions of premium photo books. For these publications experienced editorial and printing directors work closely with the artists to create timeless pieces of the highest quality and enhanced durability.
