About The Work
Through the light we can read the entire history of the universe, which is our story carried by light waves. Light is our connection to the Cosmos. Origins portrays an intimate dialogue with time and reality. It talks about the formation of bodies, identity, the mirror and the hidden powers who run through our organs. This series browse an already finished story, but we still don’t know where it begins and where it ends. Origins was inspired by Nàdia’s life at different phases, especially from the birth of her daughter, born visually impaired .
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.
