I was visiting a butterfly exhibition and found myself fascinated by these creatures' characteristic delicacy and lightness. I then started thinking about Milan Kundera's novel "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." Let me quote its final scene—
"Tomas turned the key and switched on the ceiling light. Tereza saw two beds pushed together, one of them flanked by a bedside table and lamp. Up out of the lampshade, startled by the overhead light, flew a large nocturnal butterfly that began circling the room. The strains of the piano and violin rose up weakly from below."
And there they were in front of me, Kundera's own butterflies. I could almost hear the music.
We are currently offering photographs in two different formats:
- Classic: 40x30cm or 50x40cm (depending on image)
- Large: 80x60cm
Each photographs' size has been decided in collaboration with the photographer to make sure the final piece is in the optimal dimension to suit the work.
All prints are produced on Baryta Hahnemühle 315g, on Epson Pigment Inkjet. All prints have been approved by the photographer. We work closely with each photographer to ensure every edition reflects their intentions.
Each print will come with its own "story" printed on museum archive quality paper.
For more info about our printing process, please read about our partnership with the legendary photo lab Picto.
The edition is not limited based on quantity but based on time. Each sale will present a unique selection of photographs and formats that will only be available for the duration of the sale. The limited time is part of what make our prints special.
