photographer, digital printmaker
Cone Editions Press founded in 1980 in Port Chester, NY as an experimental and collaborative printmaking studio, has been at the forefront of the digital print revolution since 1984. Its Master Printer, Jon Cone, has been producing imaginative and technically difficult editions for photographers, painters and sculptors through four decades, nearly mirroring the entire history of American Contemporary Printmaking.
Cone has been developing digital methodologies and workflow which have enabled scored of photographers, imagers, digital service providers, and teachers to embrace the latest technologies with confidence and skill. Considered to be the first pioneer of digital printmaking. Cone later went on to become IRIS Graphics Development and Marketing Partner for fine arts in the early 1990s, training an entire generation of GiclĂ©e printers. Cone has been the leading developer of archival inkjet and color management systems since the late 1990s. Cone invented the first quad-black inks and software system which used “media” profiles in 1996. He was recognized in 1999 by Photo District News as the 1999 Digital Innovator of the Year for his pioneering monochromatic inkjet work for Iris Graphics. His PiezographyÂ®BW systems is now revolutionizing traditional darkroom printing just as his IRIS software and archival inks revolutionized the fine art printmaking industry in the 1990s.
