Canson® celebrates 150 years in photography
Photography, a history that makes Canson® the last pioneering photographic paper manufacturer still in business today!
No other player of the time period is still present on the market today, with the exception of Canson®, who celebrates 150 years of its Photography Patent. An anniversary that will be marked with different events throughout the year.
In 1865, Canson® submitted and was granted an international patent for the improvement of albumen paper, one of the first photographic processing papers of the time.
This patent improved final quality while avoiding the costly gold toning that was generally practised during the original process.
In 1892, Canson® received the "diplôme d'honneur", the highest award granted at the International Photography Exhibition.
Canson® maintains its spirit of innovation and combines centuries of experience in paper manufacturing with modern technologies.
Canson® favours the use of the purest, natural minerals and materials, without optical brighteners, in order to offer you print mediums that are resistant to ageing.
The papers and canvases in the Canson® Infinity range for photography and the edition for digital art produce outstanding and durable printing results, including optimal colour rendering with a wide colour range, strong DMax and excellent image sharpness.
