Collectors Edition Prints

Archival Digital Prints

Archival digital prints are made by digital photo printers using pigment-based inks with great longevity. (Artists have used pigment-and-oil paints for centuries.) John's Archival Digital Prints are printed on premium photo papers that have been rigorously tested, in combination with pigment inks, for exceptional longevity. Black and white prints use carbon and pigments to achieve exceptionally fine degrees of grayscale.

The resolution of these digital prints is indistinguishable from chemical (traditional darkroom) prints. Digital technology allows for very fine control of tonality in both color and black-and-white images to produce outstanding photographic prints.

Print Sizes

Prints are available in two paper sizes:

Please Note: At the Photographer's discretion, some images may not be available in a 16x20 edition.

These collectors edition prints, both black-and-white and color, are available in limited editions of 30. Each paper size, 11x14 inches and 16x20 inches, constitutes a separate edition. Prints are archivally mounted on museum-quality acid-free four-ply mat board. Each print is titled, numbered, dated and signed by the photographer.

Color Prints

Because digital photography has forced the closure of so many photo-processing labs, John's printer, James Syme, is unable to make color darkroom prints at this time. Archival Pigment Prints of John Byrne Cooke's color images will last over 100 years. Economy Digital Prints of John's color images are also available.

 

Platinum - Palladium Prints

Certain of John's images are available in limited-edition platinum-palladium prints.

Platinum and palladium are exceptionally inert silver-white metals that remain unaffected by exposure to light and resist interacting with chemicals in the air. Making a platinum-palladium print is an exacting four-step process and each print is unique. These prints reflect the light almost as if the image itself were glowing. John's printer, James Syme, is an experienced platinum-palladium printmaker.

Platinum-palladium prints printed on 8x10 or 11x14 Platine rag paper are available in editions limited to 25 prints. Each will be signed by John Byrne Cooke, titled, numbered, and will show the print date as well as the image title and date.

Economy Digital Prints

Economical digital prints are available as an alternative to the Collectors Edition Prints. The resolution of these prints is indistinguishable from the more expensive prints offered above. John Byrne Cooke's economy digital prints are printed on premium photographic papers. Properly framed and displayed, color prints can be expected to remain lightfast for 18-25 years or more, black and white prints for considerably longer. (These the longevity estimates are based on results obtained by Wilhelm Imaging Research, from their accelerated ageing tests.)

Print Sizes

Prints are available on two paper sizes:

Print editions are open-ended. Prints are numbered and signed by the photographer and the date the print was made is noted. If ordered matted, prints are archivally mounted on museum-quality acid-free four-ply mat board.
