Mayotte is known by some for its sad records of turtle massacres. But the island is also plagued by illegal deforestation. At the bend of one of the dangerous paths of the island, I stopped in front of this decapitated tree, one of the last condemned to death in the virgin forest that it is more than urgent to save.
“I think that during my childhood I spent more time using my dad cameras than him. I’ve always been feeling the need to capture the moments that meant something to me. Growing on a sailing boat forced me to become a contemplative guy. I had to make something with all this time – that can stretch a lot at sea – so I started to record it on films and memory cards”
Max spent his youth on his parents wooden ship and on Oléron island in France. Then he decided to stick with his passion for his living. “Today I try to record beautiful stories as a director of photography. This job already took me to incredible places, and made me feel joy and excitation as well as doubt and fear.” His pictures also show the importance of nature conservation for him. “The places I capture are beautiful but often endangered. Creating memories of those will not save them but I hope that my work will help convince people who are still wondering about the importance of conservation.”
The photograph is delivered in a tissue paper with white handling gloves and the certificate of authenticity. The artwork is shipped in a reinforced packaging that protects it. The combination of pigment inks and professional paper offers an exceptional result.
Its benefit : Pigment print on art paper is the most durable with a life span of over 100 years.
Simple, practical and trendy. The print is presented with its passepartout. The whole is assembled by hand with a cartfix support at the back and packed in a blister pack with the handling gloves and the certificate of authenticity. This finish is only available in standard sizes: 30x40cm, 40x50cm, 50x70cm and 70x100cm.
Its benefit : The passepartout has a neutral pH to help protect the photograph from condensation and thus increase its life span.
A classic of museums and art galleries. The art paper is laminated on a rigid 2mm Dibond support. This very resistant material is composed of a resin interposed between two thin sheets of aluminum. The no-reflection appearance and the very aesthetic aspect of this support particularly emphasize the works on art paper.
Its benefit : Dibond is a rot-proof, stainless and fully recyclable material.
Sober, elegant and modern. The photograph is laminated on cartfix and presented with its passepartout in an aluminium frame. The glass protects the artwork while increasing the brilliance of the blacks and colors. The passepartout has a neutral pH to protect the photograph by avoiding any condensation phenomenon. This is only available for S, M, L and XL formats to ensure the best rendering.
Its benefit : Aluminum is a durable material, requires no detergent to maintain and can be recycled indefinitely without losing its qualities.
A modern and refined finish that gives a lot of style to the artwork and gives an original depth effect. The print is first laminated on a 2mm thick Dibond support and then framed in a custom-made solid wood frame. This technique provides the space between the print and the inner edge of the frame. It is the star finish in galleries and among interior designers.
Its benefit : Laminated on a durable material, then framed in solid wood, the slightly recessed photograph is further protected.
