New Editions from Allan McCollum and Pablo Helguera

Graphicstudio is excited to announce two new editions which are now available. Longtime Graphicstudio collaborator Allan McCollum is involved in both projects.

Lands of Shadow and Substance is a series of twenty-seven archival pigment prints. The title comes from the television series The Twilight Zone. McCollum viewed the original episodes from 1959 to 1964 on his laptop computer, capturing screenshots of scenes that included landscape paintings.
