Perhaps because we usually grant photography a certain condition of truth or immediacy, it exerts a particular degree of seduction on us. And often we expect from her a familiar gesture, sometimes in the form of memory or always present desire, a scene or reason to recognize ourselves; others, of open window to a dreamed landscape, of enjoyment or rest for the look. When we think of a photograph as a special gift, as a precious object to frame and that has to occupy an important place in the environment of a job or at home, we should consider four issues that, like the four angles of a picture , they enclose all work of art.
Why acquire a work of photographic art?
Author photography 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. The artist works so that his work is created, printed and carefully assembled with the firm intention of being exposed, acquiring its maximum sense when it is hung for a personal, particular or great public enjoyment.
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). Photography is a unique means of expression for its ability to contain to a greater or lesser extent documentary and artistic aspects and to enclose a wide and varied possibility of readings. And, although delimited by the frame, and even in spite of its static condition, a good photograph can be very eloquent: in addition to telling us about the place, moment and motive, it reveals aspects as important as vision, intention, style and sensitivity. of its author.
Why an artistic photograph?
The more a photograph shows an intention and personal vision of its author, the closer it comes to an expressive and visually stimulating image and provokes a deep reaction in the viewer, then the closer it will be to a true 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?

Through a printing process of the highest quality, also called Giclée printing, a product with the highest quality and useful 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 faithfully reproduces the original and does justice to the artist's own work. 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.
