The photo used to make up this print features a knife grinder or tinker at work with his foot powered grinder. The photos was taken in the back roads of Tai Kok Tsui on the Kowloon side Hong Kong. This is, indeed, a rare sight anywhere in the world and perhaps no more so than in Hong Kong. But, this is one of the endearing things about Hong Kong, that there’s space and enough of a calling to support trades like this and for the craftsmen who ply them to flourish in a metropolis like this.
All prints offered for sale from this site are paper based. The prints are made using the Lambda C printing process, a process whereby a digital image is projected onto some form of chromogenic photo-sensitive media via three [RGB] laser beams. The media is then run through a wet chemical process to render the final print. We offer either a matt or glossy photo finish. Each print has a 1 centimetre white boarder around it. We do not offer framing or mounting.
At this time we do not offer prints using ink-jet printing technologies. Simply put, our digital workflow has been optimised to use Lambda C printing process technologies. Our printers use Fuji’s Photo Crystal papers. By archival standards, Fuji papers are on par with the best art papers used to make ink-jet prints. While we do not usually sign our prints, each print comes with its own signed Certificate of Authenticity.
