Materia et Lumen

Publishing and Printing Authentic Photographs

digital scan of an original photograph


Although it is displayed by your monitor, what you see above was not computer generated. What you see is a fair reproduction of an authentic photograph: an original work recorded by the natural reaction of silver halide to light AND by one, irreversible human decision. There is no gray area between real and virtual; there are choices we make and responsibilities we bear.

Help us preserve our art, a unique human adventure founded on a peerless technology, by endorsing our code of ethics:

The Materia et Lumen Criterion.
