Meteora is a rock formation in Kalampaka, Thessaly in Greece that is hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox Monasteries. The change of weather in between these magical cracks of the rocks is a sight unique in the world.
My name is Kostas Kapranis and I am an architect and freelance outdoor and adventure photographer that grew up in Germany and moved to a small town in Greece. Since I can remember, I can say for sure that I feel most alive when I am outside, discovering, searching for new adventures. I was fascinated by the idea of traveling to all corners of the earth, and it remains my ultimate dream. My passion for photography began eight years ago when a camera found its way into my hands. My life today is only the result of that. I believe that passion is a powerful sentiment hidden deep inside us until it is awoken.
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 prints on art paper are the most durable with a life span of over 100 years.
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.
Extra : 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.
Extra : Aluminum is a durable material, its maintenance does not require any detergent and its recycling can continue 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.
Extra :Laminated on a sustainable material, then framed in a solid wood, the slightly recessed photograph is more protected.
