about the image

This image has been captured with an 8x10 large format analog camera. It has been shot on print film which has been scanned on a drumscanner. The resulting file is 270 megapixels and has been optimized in Photoshop. This means dust has been removed and colors have been altered until they were exactly as I had the scene in mind.

about the print

The print is produced from the digital file on an OCE Lightjet 500XL, which can print formats up to 300x180cm. The image is exposed on a piece of photographic paper directly from the digital file with a laser. In my opinion this is higher quality than any inkjet printer can produce. The print is then developed in a dark room the classic way.

Due to the high quality of the input file, it is possible to offer this image up to a format of 300x180cm (118x72in), and you will be able to approach the print very close until you start seeing the grain.
