What is "Fine Art" ?
Photography is part of the so called Fine Arts.
The main focus is on the aesthetical realization of the artist's vision with the use of state-of-the-art technical equipment (optics, film/image sensor, paper, print).
I only use the best high quality materials for my Fine Art Prints to achieve museum quality. This adds value to my pictures for collectors and shows my conviction to offer high quality pictures.
Photography - ancient greek: "photos" + "graphein"
I use both high resolution full frame digital cameras and large format film cameras (4x5'' and 8x10'').
Handling "old fashioned" large format cameras takes some effort but offers me the option of perspective control for better depth of field, which can not be achieved with digital cameras. Scanning large format films result in high resolution images with up to 1200 MegaPixels.
My pictures are Giclée prints from high-end 12 pigment ink large format inkjet printers and feature the highest state-of-the-art color gamut and archival grade museum quality.
Those pigmented inks ensure long lasting prints that can resist fading for over 200 years indoors.
UV-Protective glass should be used to guarantee the longevity of the prints.
Since canvas pictures usually hang without protective glass, those prints are protected with multiple layers of UV-protection varnish.
