WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS THE PHOTOGRAPH PRINTED ON?
All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
WHAT IS THE PRINTING PROCESS USED?
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
IS THE IMAGE SIZE THE SAME AS THE PAPER SIZE?
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 of 0.5 inch white border. This is an artistic decision that belongs to the artist. Margins don’t normally exceed 2-4 inches on each side depending on the final paper size.
Photographer for 40 years, Rejean Meloche has divided his career between press coverage and snapshots. A privileged witness years of Quebec effervescence, he fixed on film thousands of events and personalities for various media from the specialized press and the general public, including the Montréal-Matin and Le Devoir.
His work was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Cultural and Community Centre Henri-Lemieux in LaSalle in 1991. Winner of various awards, he still drags his camera around the city as a freelance photographer.
