FINE ART PRINTING

The Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta Paper which I use for my luxury printings. Notice its unique veined texture.

IN AN AGE OVERWHELMED ON A DAILY BASIS BY DIGITAL PICTURES, IT MAY SOUND STRANGE TO REMIND THAT FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY IS STILL MADE FOR PAPER, NOT FOR SCREENS.

 

EVEN THOUGH DIGITAL ARCHIVING ALLOWS ENHANCED PROTECTION OF THE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS THAN THE SILVER NEGATIVES, PRINTING REPRESENTS THE MATERIALIZATION OF THE ARTIST'S MOCK-UP AND THE EMBODIMENT OF HIS THOUGHT.

 

A PAPER PRINT CONDENSES A LOT OF FEELINGS AND PERCEPTIONS : WATCHING IT, TOUCHING IT, EVEN SMELLING IT, ARE SENSITIVE EXPERIENCES WHICH TAKE US INSTANTANEOUSLY TO HUNDREDS OF YEARS OF LOVE FOR THE BEAUTY AND THE SENSUALITY OF PAPER. 

MY PHOTOGRAPHS GENUINELY COME INTO BEING WHEN PRINTED BY THE FAMOUS FRENCH PROFESSIONAL LAB NEGATIF + ON THE LEGENDARY FINE ART PAPERS MADE BY HAHNEMÜHLE. I USE FIRST AND FOREMOST THE "FINE ART BARYTA PAPER" : 325 GSM, 100% α-CELLULOSE, BRIGHT WHITE, HIGH-GLOSS. THIS UNIQUE PAPER GIVES THE "WOW" FACTOR TO BOTH B&W AND COLOUR PRINTS WITH AMAZING CONTRAST AND RELIEF.

THIS IS WHY WHEN ACQUIRING ONE OF MY FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHS, YOU ARE GUARANTEED TO GET A GENUINE WORK OF ART WHICH FOLLOWS IN THE STEPS OF A GREAT TRADITION OF REFINED CREATIONS.
