Stephan Sagmiller continues his reflection on the portrayal of nature in contemporary culture through the first of a new series of books. Working from Risograph prints made by Sagmiller in 2015, Schema represents the unique character of his vivid four-color digital printing process. Sagmiller limited the original print run exclusively to makeready prints. Makeready’s are a byproduct of print production during the warmup, calibration and registration of each color plate. In an imperfect attempt to achieve an accurate likeness to the original material, Sagmiller's photographs set up a kind of imagination game, a play of form and color that reveals our tendency to recognize the familiar and construct the unfamiliar. Schema draws attention to the role of printing technology in the process of environmental imagination through photography. Published by SUN (Los Angeles).
