Archival Pigment Giclée Prints | Todd Weinstein
The photographs are Giclée prints/high-quality
inkjet prints*, signed by the artist and presented un-matted.
A Giclée (pronounced Jee Clay) is a French
phrase coined in the 17th Century whose meaning translates close
to "fine spray" in English. The term is currently used
regarding the latest form of high-quality, original-art print production
methodology using high-end types of permanent-pigment spray printers
to produce original archival quality art prints.
* Inkjet Prints (1990s—present). Inkjet prints
are the most common form of computer-generated print. Firstly, the
photographic image is digitized, a digital computer file being created
by scanning a print, transparency, or negative of the original.
Or the image may be loaded directly into the computer from a high
resolution digital camera. The digital file is manipulated on the
computer to achieve the desired result in printing, the old techniques
of dodging and burning in being achieved electronically, as is colour
manipulation and many of the other tricks once done by hand. The
print can be made on various kinds of paper or substrate, the only
limitation being that it must be capable of being loaded into the
printer. As the name implies, inkjet printing means that that computer
controlled printing heads spray minute droplets of ink at the paper.
Multiple droplets are overlaid to create a continuous tone reproduction,
rather than the screen or dot patterns associated with traditional
photomechanical printing techniques. When properly made on the more
professional printers, inkjet prints can offer exquisite image quality,
and now that the newer inks are offering archival permanence, will
become a much more established part of the contemporary photo art
market. — Collecting Photography, By Gerry Badger, p. 139
