Crane Museo

by Pete Myers at the Luminous Landscape

Suggesting a new fine art photography paper to photographers is likely akin to discussing religion—every one has an opinion—and what works for one, likely does not work for others.

Nevertheless, a new fine art paper, Crane Co. Museo Silver Rag, is entering the market, with a release date of late February 2006, coinciding with this year’s Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show. As a beta tester of this paper, and in chorus with many of my fellow beta testers, we have come to regard Museo Silver Rag with true endearment. Why the enthusiasm for a new paper, in a market choked with paper choices...?

My friend Keith Johnson is an excellent color photographer and also a rep and beta tester for this paper. He showed me a portfolio of beautifully printed color work on this paper in August. It's the only inkjet paper I've seen that really replicates the surface of air-dried glossy fiber paper. This is not a surface that's traditionally been available for color and it was a real pleasure to see this combination.
