Voirin Editions is pleased to announce our premier publication – The Gryphons of Paris by Ronald Hurwitz. A concert violist by profession, a photographer by vocation, Hurwitz, in words and pictures, has fashioned a chronicle of Paris in the closing years of the twentieth century. It is an intimate vision in which cafes and sidestreets, wine merchants and peddlers form the backdrop and cast of characters in a lyrical tale of how Paris lives and how Hurwitz has lived there.
In the fine press tradition, The Gryphons of Paris has been composed in lead type and printed and bound by hand. The portfolio of thirty–three photographs has been exquisitely reproduced as duotone stochastic lithographs, printed on Utopia paper and varnished. The volume has been quarter bound in black Canapetta book cloth with French marble paper over boards. The book measures 6 x 9 inches; 64 pages. Limited to an edition of 200, signed by the artist.
The Limited Edition Platinum Portfolio – Comprised of ten images selected from The Gryphons of Paris, each work, presented on Arches mould-made acid-free paper, has been sensitized with platinum and palladium metals to achieve the ultimate in photographic craftmanship and artistic beauty. The portfolio of ten photographs, each approximately 8" x 10", dated and signed by the artist, and mounted in acid-free museum board, is housed in its own beautiful hand-made presentation box, a work of art in its own right.

Ronald Hurwitz's work can be found in numerous Parisian collections including the Bibliothèque nationale, Musée Carnavalet, and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie.
