I adore photographs …
I really do. Nothing beats holding an actual photograph in your hands, so much more an emotive experience than touching a photograph on the screen.
I have boxes of photos from trips, photos of old lovers tucked away in books, photographs of my mother in glass jars, photographs of Paris in shoe boxes and hundreds of polaroids stuck to the wall of my living room. I have the last photograph of my father taken just two weeks before he died in 1977. Recently mum discovered some photographs of him that I had never seen before, it was like seeing him for the first time. These photographs of Dad give me a connection to someone I never knew. That's what I want to create for you. Connections for your loved ones. Your family histories and memories. Photographs of memories to hand down.
Photographs matter, because our loved one's matter I am committed to preserving your photographs and creating pretty hand me down photographic heirlooms. I started out as a photographer pre-digital so I remember the glorious days of family albums and that makes me a purist when it comes to photography. I simply have to print and because of this invested in only the best printers and print, all my images in-house the way galleries and museums print their images and only on the finest giclee photographic papers. Photographs can last hundreds of years but they must be printed on archival papers and stored in the right preservation conditions. I want your romantic nostalgia to remain as beautiful as the day they were printed.
