This is a hybrid event our New York chapter, and Soho Photo Gallery, are presenting, along with APA National. We will be in the gallery in-person for an informal print Crit starting at 5:30. Bring a photograph or two and we will discuss them. Hahnemühle will be on hand with us to discuss paper choices and answer any questions.
Then at 6:30 we will watch Khodr’s talk, Master Fine Art Printing, and learn how we can bring our photographs to life by raising our fine art printing skills!
Khodr Cherri is a master printer and photography and imaging professor at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA.
In his talk, you'll learn:
The process of fine art printing
The difference in pigment papers
Custom profile vs. generic profiles

Khodr Cherri is the Creative Director of A&I Fine Art & Photography, and he is teaching at Art Center College of Design. He is a very trusted authority in photographic printing and imaging on our team. His three decades of working with the highest caliber artists have given Khodr Cherri unique status and a wide following in the fine art world.
Khodr Cherri established his own printing business called "Beyond- Photographic" in Los Angeles, California, three years ago in order to serve the local community and to collaborate with artists and photographers from all over the world.
“My vision at Beyond Photographic is to collaborate with each artist to provide expert consultation with a hands-on approach, creating traditional-style exhibition quality Chromogenic and Giclee/ Pigment print, and custom-designed photo books as well as discovering new substrates for large format that are unique to the individual photographer.”
