At Lineature, we believe that the re-edition of historical photographs should not be limited to a mere copy of the image, it should also take into account the paper that were used then, the technique that was employed and the context in which the photograph was taken. These principles are reflected in our carefully selected material and by our procedure; we work with experts in digital photography and museum conservators to offer you:
A New Technique:
After more than 18 moths of research and over 1000 tests on paper, we have developed a new technique that allows us to propose photographs without plastic layers. Our innovative technique at last allows us to enjoy the warmth and the beauty of the colour and the paper, without the cold harshness of reflective plastic surfaces.
Professional Selection and Restoration of Photographs:
We propose photographs of rare artistic quality and we work with museum conservators coming from internationally recognised institutions including the Getty Conservation Institute, the Musei Vaticani and the Centre George Pompidou.
For correct restoration processes, even a virtual one using Photoshop, we work exclusively according to international restoration standards for the care of cultural heritage:
- We study and adapt ourselves to each piece without standardising our procedure
- We apply treatments that do not alter or delete the photograph's history
- We implement high- quality materials and museum-standards criteria
- We employ a print technique used by the Louvre Museum and the British Museum
We combine the best of traditional knowledge and modern printing techniques to minimise the use of plastic and we promote natural and recycled materials made with the knowledge of traditional practices. Furthermore, we have selected a carbon neutral option for the green transportation of your artworks.
