Limited signed prints

What are limited signed prints?

Certified limited signed editions is a proof of originality.

These copies are printed by me to secure the highest quality, expression , and longevity in the final product.

Paintings exist in only one copy and perhaps a few drafts. This uniqueness is appealing to collectors. It is nice to own something special and the influence on pricing is also important.

However it is the very nature of photography to work with copies. Some art forms like lithography also produce 'original' copies. Artist working in this category produce their work in bundles called limited editions. Each copy is numbered and the total number of copies is also noted next to the signature.

Because a photo is not printed in all its copies at the same time for stock we cannot legally use the term 'limited edition'. In stead many photographers state the maximum number of copies they intend to make of a series and keep track of it. This is called limited signed editions.

In my case a series is in a given format. Thus there is usually a series in large format like 50 x 70 cm of max 10 prints and a series of 40 x 30 cm of max 20 prints.

For a copy to count as a limited signed print, you must buy it from me, a gallery or an exhibition.
