This year marks a milestone for NBP and the many image makers we have met over the past 20 years. Our goal from the start has been to match extraordinary moments documented in the field with excellence in printing technology. Delivering the best representation of the photographer’s story in he final print is our number one priority. Every year we seek new ways to exceed the expectations of the visitors to our annual exhibitions at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, as well as the photographers whose vision brings us there.

"Choosing Epson as our Printing and Paper Partner was easy after listening to the pros in the field and specialists in the prepress industry," says Steve Freligh, Director, NBP. "Representing the pinnacle of excellence in print, Epson developed all-new pigment-based inks with a dramatically improved Dmax for richer blacks and contrast ratios. In addition, this new pigment technology has up to twice the overall print permanence of previous printers. These changes not only improve print quality but make prints more collectible as works of art."
