Different paper, different printers
I spent quite a long time to understand which were the best paper and process for my photographic works.

Chronologic prints are the result of printing a digital file on a continuous tone printer (Lambda Durst Printer) that uses chromogenic (silver based) paper, while Pigment prints (also known as giclees) are produced with professional inkjet printers.Read More
This serie was my first taken on a large format camera. Commencing in 2005 while I lived in the United Arab Emirates, I was inspired and fascinated by the ever-changing cityscape around me. Its architectural diversity led me to scale the rooftops of buildings still under construction so I could capture new angles and fix the outline of the city skyline in my work.
This fascination extended the series to include Shanghai and New York, photographed using a similar process but producing dramatically different works this has inspired an enthusiasm for capturing the architecture of cities and their different personalities and histories. These works were exhibited as part of the series 'Vertigo Cities' in Paris in 2010.
