New Baryta FB from Hahnemühle is a fiber-based, 100 percent alpha-cellulose paper that features a whiter, smoother, glossier surface than other offerings in the Baryta line. Baryta FB is an archival inkjet paper developed for photo-traditionalists who want the authentic look and feel of glossy silver-gelatin prints from the classic darkroom era.
This bright white paper with its ultra-smooth surface texture, glossy coating and substantial, 350gsm weight, corresponds to classic silver-gelatin baryta media in both structure and feel. Baryta FB is certified archival grade, ISO standard 9706 and meets the highest standards for image quality and longevity.
According to New Orleans-based photographer, Eric Waters, "This fantastic new paper from Hahnemühle registers sharpness and detail very well with color hue and saturation that are true to the integrity of my files. I'll continue to use Hahnemühle products with the confidence that they'll always deliver the best image quality possible Baryta FB's archival properties and paper weight are bonuses."
Waters has been a professional photographer for more than twenty-eight years. He decided early in his career that the New Orleans street culture had significant historical value and was therefore worthy of documentation. Although he is a sought-after event and wedding specialist, Eric is best known for his vibrant, energetic images of the Second Line and New Orleans Mardi Gras Indians. He is one of a scant handful of professionals with an "insider's" view of what makes this culture come alive.
