Christian Vieler has been working as a full-time dog photographer since 2016. He says: “In these candid moments, we experience our best friends as we rarely see them in everyday life. In their faces, we recognise panic, joy, fear of loss, sheer desire and the peak of pleasure. In a moment of revelation, the dogs reveal to us their human side, while distinctly remaining a dog at the same time. Therefore, for me, a snapshot is not just a funny picture – it is simply pure joy for the heart.” Get one of his limited and personally signed prints on FineArt Baryta!

In his book „Cuban Beauty“, Martin Häusler developed his own view and perspective of the beauty of this mysterious Caribbean island. He spent over three years casting native Cuban models, scouting for locations all over the island and creating a unique series of photographs with his Cuban team. His focus was to show a younger Cuba and the interests of a new generation of Cubans. Both the traditional and modern are blended together in this collection of images. Luxurious limited edition prints are signed by Martin Häusler himself exclusively on Hahnemühle German Etching paper.

Italian photographer Francesco Gola is thrilled with our brand new Photo Rag® Metallic and is going to sign limited prints of an iconic seascape captured in his long exposure style. When working with long exposures, he realised that he doesn’t just freeze a moment, but an entire period of time. For Francesco Gola, photography is a source of inspiration that allows us to reveal the relationship between the outer world of nature and our inner world of dreams, thoughts, emotions, desires and wishes.
I love all the images depicted. They all seem perfectly matched to the papers they are printed on.
