However for some projects more confidential papers can be used.

Certificat MONUMA© Certificate a world first
Each photo print is delivered with its certificate of authenticity from the blockchain MONUMA©. This certificate of authenticity is a legal and official document to transmit to your insurance and it is useful in case of loss or theft on the work, but also for the sale of it. I am the first photographer in the world to be certified MONUMA.
Digigraphie® or Original Print©Labels
The digital photo prints are labeled Digigraphies® and the silver prints are labeled Original Print©. These are technical labels that allow to produce or reproduce a work of art according to technical criteria of excellence and to certify the quality of the print, in particular by the selected paper, the selected inks – as part of digital prints – but also of the limited number of works in the world with a maximum of 30 prints / photo in the world. A single certificate is given to the purchaser of the work. These certificates are official documents including the history and the number of the draw x / 30, (some as « Flying Girls » are limited to 20 copies). However, they have no legal value, which is why I have the MONUMA© certificate of authenticity, which has a legal and legal value.
The Lab Tirages Exposition
Since the advent of digital, I have chosen to entrust my prints to people whose job it is. Entrusting prints to a specialist is a crucial and delicate choice. For a collaboration to work, it takes trust but also a lot of listening in order to understand each other and to form a winning pair. This communication is used in particular to convey the vision of our shot, the type of contrast, density of black or white, the importance of color … Since 2017, I collaborate with Fabienne BEDEX founder of the Labs Tirages Exposition(Drawings Exhibition) located in Auray in Morbihan, Brittany, more particularly in charge of prints. We took the time to know each other.
Fabienne and her team manage the printing, the lamination, the framing and the transport of my works in France and abroad.
The laboratory is certified « Digigraphie by Epson », « Certified Print Lab » by Canson and « Certified Studio « by Hahnemülhe.
The majority of my photo prints are in black & white. I like photo prints where blacks are deep and whites are bright with a wide range of grays. In terms of presentation rare are the photos « full frame ». Usually a white margin and a black border surround the photo. In some cases, because the subject inspires me differently, I make color prints and full frame. As can be seen in the photo above: « Flying Girls » made in 2016 on the market of Adzopé in Ivory Coast.
I do not retouch my photos and for digital I do not apply filters.
