Most of the photos on this site are available as Fine Art prints.
In photography, an art print is a photograph taken by the artist, printed by him or under his control, signed and numbered up to a limit of 30 copies, in all sizes and formats. When the expected number of copies is reached, no new prints are made.
For all the photographs that I propose, I made the choice to limit this number of copies to 20.
Formats and prices
For each format, you have the choice between a single print, which you can then frame according to your desires, or a print laminated on Dibond.
Single print 50 x 50 cm or 60 x 40 cm
Single print laminated on Dibond
Other types of frames are possible. At this price, there will be added the shipping costs which are 15 € for metropolitan France (other countries on request).
To order a print, nothing more simple, go to the contact page and indicate me the title of the photo you wish to acquire.
Payment can be made either by Paypal, by bank transfer or by check (sending of the print after receipt).
Printing of prints
I entrust the printing of the photographs and the laminating process on Dibond to the professional laboratory Impression Panoramique, based in Strasbourg.
I then check each print, number, sign and affix the certification hologram before sending it to its happy owner.
All photographs are printed on Hahnemühle's exceptional Fine Art photographic papers on Epson printers with UltraChrome ™ HDR pigment inks. The papers selected are Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325g paper for color prints and Hahnemühle Photo Rag Bright White paper 310g for black and white prints.
Hahnemühle papers, printed with pigment inks, provide prints longer than 100 years under normal conditions of exposure.
The black and white prints are printed by piezography, an ink-jet printing process using coal-based pigment inks. This process ensures you the highest quality available in terms of finesse and shades for monochrome prints.
Signature and certification
Each print is numbered and signed in the rotating white margin of 3 cm (maximum) that surrounds the photograph.
On the reverse side, the draw is also numbered, signed, titled and includes a certification hologram. In the case of a laminated print on Dibond, a label will be affixed to the back with the same information as well as the certification hologram.
Each print is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity Hahnemühle®, including the title, the number of the print in the series, the printing information (technical and paper name), the format and the signature of the author. A unique holographic seal is affixed to the certificate and to the back of the photo.
The photographic work is then recorded on www.myartregistry.com thus ensuring total traceability.
Taking care of her prints
To preserve your prints and ensure them the longest possible life, it is advisable to follow some precautions when handling them.
The use of cotton gloves will avoid touching the printed surface and depositing fingerprints that could irreversibly alter the quality of the print.
When the prints are packed, carefully rolled in tissue paper, be careful to pull them out gently without opening the tube. In order to give them their flatness, you just have to roll them upside down a few minutes.
If you decide to hang your print, the ideal solution to ensure the best protection against dust and UV will be to place it under a filter glass.
Photographic art prints are not made to be exposed outdoors, nor above an important source of heat (radiator, chimney).
