THE FOUR ANGLES THAT ENCLOSE A WORK OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ART.
Why a photograph?
Currently, photography occupies a preponderant place in the world of art and communication and in it we usually recognize an important number of qualities and values. Photography has a cultural context, (tells a story) and a spatial and temporal context, (defines a now and a here). Despite, or thanks to its static condition and delimitation by the frame, a good photograph can be very eloquent: it tells us about the place, moment and motive and, of course, the thinking and vision of its author, its creativity, style , passion and sensitivity. Photography is a unique means of expression for its ability to contain documentary and artistic aspects to a greater or lesser extent.
Why an artistic photograph?
The more a photograph shows us an intention and personal vision of its author, the closer it gets to an expressive and visually stimulating image and provokes a deep reaction in the viewer, then the closer it will be to a real artistic work. Perhaps for this reason we perceive it as something beautiful and authentic and we recognize its transcendent and timeless vocation.
Why Fine Art Print?
Fine Art Print is an internationally accepted and widely used term to define a technique used in the production of photographic reproductions and artistic graphic reproductions destined for conservation, museums and exhibitions. By means of a printing process of maximum quality, also called Giclée printing, a product with the highest possible quality and the longest service life is created. From a technical perspective it has much to do with the work of the printer or final art, which in close collaboration with the author, reviews and prepares the archive so that the work becomes a reality as conceived by its creator. The figure of the artfinalist is essential to offer a quality work that does justice to the artist's own work and faithfully reproduces the original. Likewise, the materials used in the printing process, such as acid-free papers or pigmented inks resistant to light, must ensure that the copy remains unchanged for a long time. Criteria that make the copy a true work of art.
Why acquire a Fine Art work?
A photograph can be an open window to a dream landscape, a rest for the look or a desired and present memory. It is a work conceived by its creator as something unique, that with a mixture of passion, effort and talent seeks to capture something beautiful and stimulating. And, in essence, a fine art copy is that work that was created, printed and carefully assembled with the firm intention of being exposed, acquiring its maximum sense when it is hung for personal, particular or general public enjoyment.
