Manoel Island, Malta. April, 2020
An absurd view. The animal’s gaze questions us, already halfway into another reality. The shapes and colors, which respond to each other in reflections, finish composing this strange painting.
A few themes from this artwork:
The Russian documentary and portrait photographer, Daria Troitskaia, was born in Saint Petersburg, brought up in Vienna, and is now living in Milan, Italy.
Formally trained at an art school and well-versed in graphic and web design, she has also worked as an art director before she turned to photography full-time.
Guided by her continuous interest in photography on a practical and a theoretical level, she completed several courses in photography, among them the “Sotheby’s course Art as Global Business”, to enhance her skills in photography and art.
She is releasing “Maltese Exposures”, a book with street photography motives of Malta in 2020, she is now working on several photography projects.
Apart from shooting and learning photography, Troitskaia is also interested in the cameras themselves: she has assembled an impressive collection of cameras and enjoys experimenting with different equipment. Daria also collects art and photography books.
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.
