How big are the prints? What are the photos printed on?

All prints are printed on ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Pearl paper with the short edge around 210mm. Depending on the aspect ratio of your photo, your image will be printed closest to 210x210mm (square), 210x315mm (35mm), 210x262.5mm (4x5). The long edge will change dependent on aspect ratio. ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Pearl paper features the very latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) optically clear coating and coupled with recent advancements in inkjet receiving layer design, makes this the reference media for producing images with superb clarity, high sharpness and excellent colour gamut.

When will I receive my purchased print?

We will be printing everything after the exhibition finishes on Sunday 12 May. We’ll be in contact when your print is ready for postage or collection.

Where do proceeds go?

$25 will go directly to the artist, and $25 will go to Hillvale to cover printing, as well as raise funds for future gallery shows, artists fees, and exhibition development.

How many prints are available for each photo?

All prints are open editions, unless specified not for sale (NFS).

What happens if my print doesn't sell?

All photographs that are unsold will be available for collection by the artist after the exhibition has closed.
