Limited Edition Prints

Limited edition prints are the most valuable type of fine art photographic print due to their limited availability. The value of an artwork increases as its availability decreases.

Some serious art collectors want not only an art print they like, but also a unique exhibit for their collection that not many other people own.

In the pre-digital era, artwork had to be handmade, and each piece was truly unique. With this method, the edition was naturally limited. In today’s digital world, the artist must determine in advance what the edition will be.

Some photographers opt for a limited edition that runs into the thousands. Frankly, that’s a very high number. Even though it is technically a limited edition, the print run is basically a mass production. I’ve even heard of photographers selling out an edition and then deciding to create a different size or produce the work on a different medium. While there are no rules when it comes to fine art, I think there are ethical issues to consider here.

Here, I just want to be an honest, hard-working artist for you.

That’s why my Limited Editions are limited to one edition of 33 images each.

No more editions, not more than 33 images. Promised!

Please allow me to answer a few questions about limited editions here:

Are limited edition prints better than open edition prints?

Not necessarily. Whether a print is limited or not has no bearing on the quality of the photograph. Limited editions are for art collectors who want a unique display piece for their art collection, not mass produced by retailers with poor production values.

Why are some art prints (also) available in limited editions and some only in open, i.e. unlimited editions?

This is basically up to the artist’s decision.

For example, some of my images are more important for me personally than others. That’s why I offer them in a limited, signed edition (Edition), to give them a special value in the sale. Of course, the limited edition also always has a special value for art collectors.

Are limited edition prints more expensive than open edition prints?

Yes.

The prices of my limited edition photographs increase at certain intervals as the edition gets closer to being sold out.

As written before some of my images are limited, signed prints.

Limited edition prints are limited to 33 copies of each limited edition print.

These exclusive limited edition photo prints are produced as high quality C-Type prints and come with a signed and registered certificate of authenticity.

Basically, I think you should buy limited edition prints because you may feel an emotional connection to the image and to me as the photographer.

I like to keep the edition sizes small (33 copies) so that they are of value to art collectors, while using the absolute most modern printing techniques available today.

By the way: the 33 has a meaning, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰
