About the artists: The current iteration of Barloga Studios has been more than twenty years in the making. For more than two decades the father/son tandem of Dennis and Roy Barloga have been making photographs in Northern California. Currently, Dennis and Roy are combining their efforts and talents in trying to best utilize both modern printing technology and traditional photographic techniques to make prints on a variety of “unphotographic” substrates. Handmade paper, film, wood, and fabric have all been used in the search for printing mediums that best enhance a given subject.
About the paper: In the heart of the Himalayas, Nepalese artisans combine a traditional process of ancient papermaking with modern fashion and style. The result is a high-quality paper product, prized for its superior strength, durability, and rich texture. Handmade from the bark of the Daphne plant by women’s cooperatives in Nepal this natural product is 100% handmade using local raw materials, simple technology, and ancient skills. Each piece of paper is unique with slight variations in color, thickness, size and shape. The uniqueness of this handmade paper beautifully complements the detailed photographic studies individually printed in the studio of photographers Dennis and Roy Barloga. This combination of paper and image- titled and hand signed in pencil- results in a distinctive, one of a kind artwork for your enjoyment.
