Exciting Book Launching in Zurich

On June 7, the thrilling new book launch of 'Rudi' was held at Photobastei Photography Gallery in Zurich, Switzerland.

The event was accompanied by a conversation with Ben Peter and Anna-Patricia Kahn of °CLAIR Gallery, which represents us in Europe and co-edited the book. they  shared with the audience the challenging process of selecting the images for the book and producing it .

The book reveals a less familiar aspect of Rudi Weissenstein and his photographs, and offers a personal and unique perspective in photographs that have not been exposed to the public before.

The book is now available online>

We have a new printer!

Wondered how we make our quality prints?

We use Fine Art premium papers and pigment printing technology that preserves photographs in an archival level for decades... The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing, including traditional silver-halide. It is the best technique for retaining image integrity and creates an exact match of a traditional piece. It is mostly used by museums, galleries and art collectors.

Lately we received a new printer, that allows us to print even larger photos.

A Symbolic Day at Pri-Or PhotoHouse

For a year and a half now, Pri-Or PhotoHouse has been relocated to Tshernichovsky 5. And although Tshernichovsky has become a chic and cozy location, the dream of going back to Allenby 30 is still strong and will most likely happen in the next two years when construction is complete.  Since Ben Peter began working with his grandmother, Miriam Weissenstein at the PhotoHouse, one of his goals has been to preserve his grandfather’s archive of one million negatives through digitization. On November 27, 2012, Pri-Or PhotoHouse that stood at Allenby 30 for 70 years was torn down, and that same day, a contract was signed with the National Library of Israel to preserve the archive. This marked a very symbolic and heartfelt day for Pri-Or PhotoHouse.
