Karl's photographs graced the covers of more photo magazines than any living photographer; his work is displayed in museums and galleries all over the world. He invented the Gumoil printing process and his resulting prints, each of which took days to weeks to make, are haunting, breathtaking. Always printed in small editions, Karl called his gumoils 'Variable Edition' prints; no two were ever alike. His richly detailed photogravures span the breadth of Karl's interests ~ trees, winter farms, New Mexico scenes, architectural details, odd (often overlooked) conjunctions and an occasional quirky view of the world (richly colored fish market displays, a montage of Barbie dolls, denizens of the Palermo crypts).
An incomparable collection of Karl's gumoils, photogravures and, yes, his photographs will be presented at the Albuquerque Photographers' Gallery, opening reception Saturday,
Nov. 12th, 5:30 - 8:30.
Please note: Each of Karl's artworks has been authenticated by his wife, Frances Koenig, and a signed Certificate of Authenticity will be issued with any unsigned photograph.
