○ Why limiting your prints?

For each photograph, prints limit means a constant questioning and renewal for the artist.It also ensures that prints will not be present everywhere to the point of no longer notice them.Finally, the artist is closer to handmade craft than posters and rotary.
The limit of 9 originals (18 all formats combined) is a strong reference to the past of the artist, and also refers to the renewal value.

○ Are your photos retouched?

Photographies are developed according to the raw file from the digital sensor. They are then adjusted in term of luminosity, contrast, colorimetry, in a global way.
No element is deleted or added. All which is visible on the photography was there. No change of sky, etc.... No Photoshop.

○ Do you supply a certificate of authenticity?

Each print is numbered and signed on the back, and comes with an invoice.
Joining a certificate of authenticity isn't systematic, but one can be made with no cost on request.
Each print is also registered in a database, to handle editions.

○ What is the longevity of a print?

The art prints are printed on acid-free and certified paper, with pigmented inks (UltraChrome ™).
Their lifetime is higher than that of a traditional silver print. It can go from 60 to over 100 years, according to the paper used (tested by Wilhelm and LNE, independent institutes).

○ Can I choose any paper?

To ensure the longevity of the print and the desired rendering, two papers are available to choose from:

Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308g: 100% cotton, matte touch and very fine surface structure.
Harman by Hahnemühle Gloss Baryta 320g: Authentic baryta finish, smooth and shiny.

Each photograph is recommended with one of these papers.However, if you want one or the other of these papers, you can make the request.
