About The Work
Murmullos is a series that explores dualism in human nature. The series consists of 7 digital prints in color. All of the images are self-portraits created with a commercial scanner; color manipulation was done digitally afterwards. Dualism is a quality embedded in our existence. Since the beginning of humanity we have found it in the world and in human nature. Murmullos (Murmur in Spanish) is a project that uses the legend of the Doppelganger to look into the dualism inherent in every human being, especially in our psyche. I play with a dialogue between two identical entities that represent different states of the same creature.
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.
