Photographer Ron Meisel has donated one of his beautiful 40 x 15" prints to the Brooklyn Collection. Coney Island, Brooklyn--Astroland Park: Teacups, Frog Hopper and Cyclone (2007) now holds pride of place on the rear wall of the reading room to the right of the Reserve Room doors, with Bill Creevy's pastel drawing of the Central Library to the left. Ron Meisel is represented by Phyllis Stigliano at the Phyllis Stigliano Gallery, 62 Eighth Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217. This is a panoramic photograph taken with a Hasselblad Xpan camera, Fuji Color negative film and scanned on an Epson scanner. It was printed on an Epson 4800 printer with Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks. The archival paper is Hahnemuble Photo Rag Bright White.
Unfortunately I was neither able to turn off the lights nor move the photograph to eliminate reflections. In reality it looks wonderful.
