Chromogenic Prints vs Pigment Prints

Chromogenic Prints vs Pigment Prints

Different paper, different printers

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

Actually, I’m used to print on different types of papers, Chromogenic Paper and Pigment Paper. The choice depends mostly on the final result I’m seeking for my images.

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.

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.


It is no accident that the most beautiful buildings are positioned at crossroads and on show across multiple vantage points. They offer a cross section of the everyday life, they force a decision in people - which way will a passerby turns and how will this affect what they come across or experience. This series focused on capturing the crossroads and crumbling facades of Havana. The architecture feels like different moments in the history of the city frozen in time, coupled with its famous old American cars, life and a light that brings the colours alive. It is a fascinating melée to watch.

The crossroads gave me the perfect vantage point to capture a cross section of architecture and life. Seeing many angles at once it was fascinating to see which passers by would interact and consider what making a decision to follow a different path would do to their experience and my photograph. Photographed over a period of hours I would then go and composite the key moments into one final piece, capturing - like a piece of architecture - moments in time from my shoot. This series was exhibited as part of Vestige Cities in Paris in 2010.
