Lebolabo – A new collaboration

I had already started a first collaboration with Lebolabo when it was necessary to reprint the prints of NOIRS 2018 already sold during the exhibition in the art gallery of the Relais & Châteaux Saint-James in Bouliac during the summer of 2018. We reached an even higher level when did print the images (140X105 cm) sold at the exhibition (140X105 cm) NOIRS 2019 in La Grand Motte last April … And especially this Canson Baryta paper print for a Philadelphia collector 🙂 Thank you Maud Batellier, David Helman !
