The Photography of Richard Termine Wows at the 20th World Puppetry Festival

In a small city northwest of Paris, thousands of puppeteers and puppet theater lovers from around the world gathered for the 20th World Puppetry Festival in Charleville-Mezieres, France.  Included as part of this celebration were two exhibits.

The first exhibit, American Puppet Theatre Today: Photography of Richard Termine, highlighted the work of over 60 contemporary American puppet theater artists. The second exhibit, The Art of Basil Twist: Photography of Richard Termine, was an array of beautiful images that showcased multiple productions from Basil Twist’s cannon of puppet theater work.  

The Jim Henson Foundation helped to produce these exhibits, which both featured the striking photography of Richard Termine.  Richard has been photographing the New York City theater scene for over 30 years and is a photographer for the culture desk of The New York Times. His other clients include Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and The Metropolitan Opera.

When the Jim Henson Foundation first began talking about printing options for these exhibits, they immediately knew they wanted to work with Duggal as they had specific limitations and needs for the print order.  The prints needed to be thin, but also provide a crisp clear image.  They also needed to be light weight, but durable.

We are proud to have worked with the Jim Henson Foundation staff to find a print material that was perfect for their needs.  The exhibits were presented together in a shared space that was centrally located in the heart of the puppetry festival.  American Puppet Theatre Today will be remounted at La MaMa La Galleria in New York City, November 2020.
