Art prints

I create high quality art prints with tools and techniques of digital photography.
I develop and print every item myself, by hand. That way
I know that the work that I release to grace your personal or professional space is a true
and well executed gesture.

A word about the web images

When you shoot and develop with the print in mind,   a finished digital image is merely an instruction set for the printer,  a bit like an analog negative. Bespoke variations of a negative,   keep the expression true (as true as possible) on different destinations;   like relevant paper types and electronic display.

The examples on the site are web versions, adapted ‘negatives’ that load quickly on our screens.   Although web images are considerably less refined,   they offer a decent to good representation of a printed work.

Another thing to keep in mind is that printed work absorbs and reflects light.    This inherent physical feature gives expressions in ink on textured paper a distinct quality.   Actual prints have a depth and dimensions that are alas -or fortunately-,   impossible to reproduce on screens.

Modern brushes, familiar process

My approach is a bit like traditional disciplines like the darkroom or etching;
you only know in the end if you pulled off what you aimed for.
The entire workflow towards a single item or a series,
is only successfull when the negative is able to deliver unique,
individual pieces each time it gives life to a print.

Stationary galleries help you to view material at your own pace.
Select full screen display to minimize distraction or to navigate

* I print all prints by hand. When ordered through the web site a print is created on demand, I do not work in edition batches.
All prints come from an Epson Certified Printer that employs UltraChrome pigment based inks.
These machines deliver an extremely high print quality that fully addresses the demands and needs of the contemporary photographic artist.
For any print, limited editions and open editions alike, I use museum quality paper made by either Canson or Hahnemuehle. Actual choice of brand and type depends on image subject and artistic intent.
