I took this photo in the village where I live. Often, at the end of the day I go downstairs to watch the sun calmly set over the ocean and the last surfers play with the waves. Afterwards, it’s time to go home.
“Between the ocean and the mountains, that’s where I draw my inspiration, where I find my whole universe.”
Originally from a small village in the Médoc, it is on the Basque coast that Alex Peneau decided to settle down and create his production company. Film director, author and photographer, Alex has a particular approach to his work.
“I got interested in images later in life, after having spent my youth making music. For me, an image is composed like a piece of music: it is above all the expression of a feeling. My approach to photography is a special mixture of mastery and chance. Inspired by the documentary genre, I give way to a lot of space for reality, and the unexpected events that entails. I have learned through photography that you often have to push a little further than the next street, the next hill or the next wave.”
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.
