For collections & interior design I offer limited edition photographic prints from my series, signed and made with application of the classical technique of silver gelatin print at my personal home darkroom or at another professional laboratory. In some particular cases it is possible to order digital prints in archival quality, however only when it is needed for exhibition activities or if I can't offer a good hand print of some particular shot for some reason. I don't offer digital prints as a cheaper option to duplicate an image. To store the negatives I use paper slides, all the films are permanently kept in my personal archive.
For manual printing at my home darkroom I use two types of classical barite paper of Ilford & Slavich factories and home solutions chemistry. Most of the works are made with sepia toning. However classic black & white prints are available as well.
You can order & check the price of any work by writing an email or making a phone call to me. Works will be carefully delivered by mail or in person, whichever is more convenient for you. All artwork published on the site is available, some prints are made to order. In this case I will notify you as soon as your order is processed. See also Representation section for my photographs in the galleries.
Edition & Size
All photographs are available in two original sizes:
20 х 20 cm - 12 copies
45 x 45 cm - 12 copies
In addition three author copies are printed for each size. So each work is represented in maximum 15 instances of the same format. Any other number of copies of any sizes might be printed in exceptional cases for exhibitions or to repair damaged works.
Photographs can be decorated by a classical wooden frame with a mount. For this purpose I recommend wooden frame of the following size: 60 x 60 and 35 х 35 cm. Profile color may be different. Works can be purchased both framed and without a frame.
Gelatin Silver Print
Gelatin silver print is a monochrome imaging process based on the light sensitivity of silver halides. They have been made for both contact printing and enlarging purposes by modifying the paper’s light sensitivity. A brief exposure to a negative produces a latent image, which is then made visible by a developing agent. The image is then made permanent by treatment in a photographic fixer, which removes the remaining light sensitive silver halides. And finally, a water bath clears the fixer from the print. The final image consists of small particles of silver bound in a layer of gelatin. This gelatin image layer is only one of the four layers found in a typical gelatin silver print, which typically include the overcoat, image layer, baryta, and paper support.
Sepia toning involves replacing the silver in a black and white photographic print by silver sulphide, which is brown. The print is first bleached, briefly washed and then treated with the sulphide toning solution. A range of different browns can be obtained by varying the pH of the solution. Because silver sulphide is more stable than silver, sepia toning increases the archival properties of the photographic print.
For a limited edition, an artist determines a size, type of paper and a total number of prints to be created. Each print is numbered and signed, and because the number of prints is limited, they are considered unique. The value of a limited edition often rises over time.
