My photos are printed with the utmost care using pigment ink printers. I use the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 with Epson's UltraChrome K3 inks and the Epson SureColor SC-P900 with UltraChrome Pro10 inks. Both inks are pigment-based and known for their high stability. According to Wilhelm Imaging Research Inc., prints made with UltraChrome K3 inks on archival-grade papers can maintain their quality without visible degradation for up to 100 years (color) or 200 years (black and white). The Pro10 inks are even more durable and offer enhanced stability.

I am primarily using the following fineart papers.

  • Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308: 308 g/m2, 100% cotton, matte, fine felt structure, almost no optical brighteners (OBA)
  • Hahnemühle Museum Etching: 350 g/m2 (heavy), 100% cotton, matte, textured surface, no OBAs
  • Canson Arches 88: 310 g/m2, 100% cotton, matte, ultra-smooth, no OBAs
  • Canson Rag Photographique: 310 g/m2, 100% cotton, smooth matte, no OBAs
  • Moab Entrada Rag Natural 300: 300 g/m2, 100% cotton, matte, no OBAs

I also print on the following papers, which resemble the natural gloss of silver gelatine baryta papers

  • Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta: 325 g/m2, α-cellulose, high gloss, bright white
  • Hahnemühle Photo Rag Pearl: 320 g/m2, 100% cotton, pearl gloss, no OBAs
