THE PRINTING PROCESS
All of Alex Jones’ images are produced by a highly regarded London based printer of archival pigment prints. They work with leading galleries in the UK and some of the most recognised contemporary photographers. Their proprietorial printing process employs technology that transcends generic digital prints by allowing for bespoke allocations of the 12 ink cartridges within the Canon drum printer.
All prints are on 315gsm Hahnemühle photo rag Baryta paper and varnished after processing to give both endurance and sheen. Pre-printing, the raw camera files are prepared by craftsmen of the highest calibre. This ensures that these very large prints have consistent tonal renditions and powerful contrast.
John’s are leading exponents of art and technology working together to produce picture quality that surpasses traditional darkroom printing and machine operated digital printing.
THE MOUNTING AND FRAMING
Alex’s prints are all mounted and framed in a quality that befits the print. Mounts are hand-made and finished with a single piece of white cotton cloth. All prints framed worldwide are consistent with this style.
* We endeavour to frame locally where possible and have a number of trusted framers in the U.K. Prints can be purchased unframed upon request.
