No, the photograph is not signed, instead the Photographer signs a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) which accompanies very limited edition prints (1 to 30). The COA protects the security and genuineness of your limited edition print. Larges editions (31 and more) don't come with a certificate of authenticity.
The smaller print sizes are produced in larger editions and do not come with a Certificate Of authenticity to make them more widely accessible and more affordable. Photographs are available in different formats depending of the artist, small, medium or larger scale. The large-scale print size is normally produced in a very limited edition (1-30 prints) making them more valuable because of the limited number available and they also come with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
The Print Atelier aims to achieve accuracy between the photographs you see online and your final print. However we cannot be responsible for minimal differences deriving from reproduction techniques that may exist between the presented image and the print. Computer screens may differ and the colour and contrasts of the image on the screen may not look exactly like what you receive. This is because different types of monitors are calibrated differently. Also, any prints with a soft focus or texture work (grain, spots, etc.) were created that way for artistic purposes.
No. Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum 0.5 inch white border.
A native of Saint Martin d’Hères, France, Nicolas has lived in Milan, Grenoble and Montreal but is now based in Paris where he is a practicing architect.
Nicolas views that activity as complementary to his photography. ‘Creation in architecture is a dense, slow and complex process closely tied to fiction. The working architect is a perpetual day-dreamer attempting to transpose an intuition about the relationship between the human and landscape. Photography is a more intense and instantaneous process focused on the moment and a psychological relationship with the subject. "
He is inspired both by the ‘monumental timelessness’ of artists such as Judd, Serra or Turrell and the ‘psychologists’ Caravaggio and Weegee.
