acclaim for his work in China, on board for the start of the bamboo campaign. His internationally sought-after

Justin's colored images will be displayed on a black background as part of the Hahnemuhle booth.
Justin Guariglia on the new paper: "When the Aperture Foundation approached me to create an international
traveling exhibition of our book Shaolin: Temple of Zen, I turned to Hahnemuhle for a paper that would reflect
the spirit of the project. The Bamboo 290 paper was my immediate first choice. Its beautiful warmth and texture
imbues every print with an unsurpassed feeling of intimacy and energy. These qualities allow us to accurately
share the sacred and sublime spirit of this fifteen-hundred year old Chinese Zen temple with audiences around
Guariglia's new book with Aperture, Shaolin: Temple of Zen, will be released October 2007. One signed copy of
new book will be raffled off each day an hour before close of show. The books will also be available for sale
through the Aperture Foundation.
For the first time Hahnemuhle will, on the occasion of the Bamboo launch, support several environmental
projects. On October 20th, customers will be able to log on to the website www.green-rooster.com and propose
an environmental project.
Renowned photographer Platon will have three images printed on the new FineArt Baryta on display at the
Hahnemuhle booth. The three images will be black and white portraits. Known for his bold and graphic signature
portrait style, Platon has been commissioned by some of the most influential magazines to photograph some of
the most prominent people of our time.
As a student, Platon received British Vogue's "Best Up- and-Coming Photographer" award in 1992. Platon
continues to shoot fashion, portrait and documentary work for a range of international publications, including
The New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, Time, Rolling Stone, Newsweek and GQ. He has also worked in

first monograph, "Platon's Republic," was published in 2004 by Phaidon Press. Platon's work has been exhibited
at many prominent galleries throughout the world.
