Lou Reed


Lou Reed, born March 2, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York, and died October 27, 2013 in Southampton, Long Island, New York, was an American singer-songwriter who began his career with the band The Velvet Underground. He was one of the band’s guitarists, vocalists, and primary songwriters; he composed many of the songs that became popular after the band broke up in 1970. The Velvet Underground has had a major influence on several generations of songwriters, despite its lack of commercial success in the 1960s.

In the early seventies Lou Reed had ups and downs with some really extraordinary albums like ‘Transformer’ (a David Bowie-Mick Ronson production), ‘Berlin’ and the live album ‘Rock ‘n Roll Animal’ with unforgettable versions of Sweet Jane and Heroin, which were in fact covers of his band The Velvet Underground.

But at the same time he also produced highly experimental albums like ‘Metal Machine Music’.
In the mid-seventies, he decided to move towards more ugly, less dramatic music. He released the albums ‘Coney Island Baby’ in 1976 and ‘Rock ‘n Roll Heart’ in 1977.

On 11 April 1977 he performed Rock ‘n Roll Heart at Forest National and played his classics ‘Walk On The Wild Side’, ‘Rock and Roll’ and ‘Satellite Of Love’ in his own cool, New York way.

Longevity of carbon pigment inks
Tests carried out in the USA, in the Wilhem research center, guarantee a longevity of 150 years if these inks are associated with acid-free papers, with the Hahnemühle or Canson paper ranges we work with.
On a more technical aspect, the carbon inks are encapsulated: it is coal dust mixed with a binder which allows to deposit it on the paper. No difference in density between the printer output and after drying. There is a slight evaporation of the binder which stabilizes the pigment on the coating. It remains then the coal dust, which will give the density and nuance of the black and white impression.
The inks are made from pure monochromatic pigments chosen for their resistance to light, available in seven progressive shades, from light gray to black. They are specially designed to reflect light back to the viewer’s eye and completely eliminate color anomalies such as metamerism (which changes color depending on the light source). The Piezography System, monochrome inks, provides a unique photographic look that includes depth and brilliance throughout the image surface.
The formula allows for a longevity that reaches record levels when printing on archival and fine art papers. The print quality is at least equal to the best silver baryta print, if not better.
