Back to the Print

Over the years we have seen a decline in the amount of printed works, and we’ve seen the effect it has on homes around the world. Every day someone loses all their cherished memories due to a lost phone, a digital collapse, or worse. 

Technology is changing so fast that many photographs taken only 5-6 years ago are stored on devices that are no longer supported. Sadly, this means that many of the memories captured today won’t be around tomorrow!

Do you remember the last time you lost something important to you that was only stored digitally? Now imagine the same feeling at the thought of losing a piece of art.

I focus on printing my work because I strongly believe that paper is the final medium to enjoy beautiful photography and it can last more than a hundred years when properly handled.

Learning how to print fine art images has been one more beautiful discovery on my path along my photography journey: printing is an entirely new skillset to acquire, that requires almost as long as learning photography in the first place required to master. 


Printing, like photography, is also a very interesting intersection of technology and art: where color calibration, paper dynamic range and color response sit firmly in the realm of technology, the choice of the paper itself to match an image and enhance it is the essence of a creative process. 

The same image will look drastically different on different papers.

Which is why I not only test every paper I can put my hands on to understand its intrinsic characteristics, but I spend long hours and a lot of ink testing and matching images to papers to find the exact combination that renders my initial vision. 

I don’t stop tweaking the image and the paper until I’m thoroughly satisfied with the final result. 

And then I match the frame that I think will further enhance the print: not every frame or finishing will match every print.

It’s a long and rewarding process.

The result of this process is a print on your wall, that I hope will recreate that brief moment of joy when you look at it.
