This photo was taken in the water, a little off the coast of Guéthary. Above all, it reminds me of my way of life, and the incredible luck I have to be able to work and spend time in the water, under the silent watch of these Basque crests.
“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 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.
