About the Item

Francois' Animalia series is described as “a photographic menagerie of startling, sensitive portraits.” The series started when the artist saw a giraffe poking its head over a fence against a bright white sky. Francois often takes her pictures about 5 – 6 feet away, with a wide-angle lens from below, and uses and develops real film before printing editions of the work. The animals are often in sanctuaries and rehabilitation centers, reversing the traditional wildlife portrait narrative. Nine holds a Masters of Fine Art degree from the University of Texas at Austin. Her work has been represented internationally in publications such as Communication Arts, Foto&Video (Moscow) and The British Journal of Photography. Her photographs are part of numerous public and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Wittliff Gallery of Southwestern & Mexican Photography, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the University of Texas at Dallas collection. Nine currently lives in Austin, Texas where she has taught photography at Texas State University, the University of Texas at Austin and Austin Community College.

    By Jörg Krichbaum
    Located in Brussels, BE
    Artwork sold in perfect condition - Off-Print # 1 (Saint Tropez 1978) from the portfolio Lines (Coffret Prestige # 2) This image was captured on film (1978) The selected negative was printed on Baryta paper by the author and then limited digital reproduction printed later (2021) on fine art paper Photo Rag Baryta 310 gsm for highest age resistance using pigment inks which are known for their longevity. The sun, the sea, the waves, the spray, the bodies lying on the sand. Krichbaum's photos are like the antithesis of "postcard". No bather, no walker, not even a seagull, and yet everything is there. In his desire to leave the viewer free to imagine everything from his photos, the artist did not give titles to his photos, just an indication of date and place.

    Artwork sold in perfect condition - Off-Print # 2 (Munich 1979) from the portfolio Step by Step (Coffret Prestige # 1) This image was captured on film (1979) The selected negative was printed on Baryta paper by the author and then limited digital reproduction printed later (2021) on fine art paper Photo Rag Baryta 310 gsm for highest age resistance using pigment inks which are known for their longevity. Steps, a ladder, almost all from the bottom to the top, to show you are climbing. Or ? It's up to everyone to decide, to think about which metaphor they prefer. But it's still a personal matter. For some it will be happy, easy or joyful, while for others, Jörg says in a text written in 1982, the image will refer to a painful memory, a painful sensation, an ordeal. Because this image is "us", it is only us but it is all of us. Limited Edition 1/5 Unframed Please note this will include any custom sizes requested German photographer Jörg Krichbaum...
