FINE-ART PRINTS

In-House, Fine-Art Prints

Eco-Friendly Products

We use Hahnemühle’s gorgeous Digital FineArt Hemp paper. Hemp, which requires minimal maintenance, grows quickly and does’t need any pesticides, has often been used for long-lasting historical documents, such as the Gutenberg Bible and the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

FSC® Certified Wood Frames

Our wooden frames are of the finest Nielsen® workmanship and are sourced from non-endangered woods grown in sustainably managed forests that meet the criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council.

Well-Crafted, In-House

From editing to printing and framing, all of our products are created in our small atelier, located in the picturesque Hérault department of southern France.

Our Fine-Art images are printed in-house on Hahnemühle’s FineArt Hemp paper, a 290 gsm natural bright white paper made of 60% hemp fiber and 40% cotton with a silky feel. The acid-free and lignin-free Fine Art paper combined with our best-in-lass ink set meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance and image permanence while still producing a gorgeous range of colors. In addition, hemp grows quickly, requires minimal maintenance, and doesn’t need any pesticides. The rapid growth allows more plant fiber to be produced on the same cropland than with other materials, and it requires much less water, helping to better protect the planet through saving resources. Each image is printed with a 5cm border on all sides to facilitate framing, including using archival quality techniques. Each one is a signed and numbered limited edition print that is delivered in a roll. It is best handled with gloves.

We also sell 50x40cm wooden framed prints that start at 85 €. Each one is a beautiful fine art print on RC paper printed with our best-in-class ink for beautiful colors and high fade resistance. Choose our ready-to-hang framed option with glass, an acid-free window mat, and an FSC© certified wooden frame for select sizes.

Lasting Beauty

David Meaux takes care to produce not only stunning prints that will make your home, office, or place of business a beautifully welcoming space but to create pieces of art that will keep their beauty for years to come.

There are moments when photographs are planned months or even years ahead and others where nature’s magic just happens to unravel right in front of you at the right place and time. Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate, the lighting is too flat, the season is wrong, or disaster may have struck and altered the scenery, but not on these days. On this particular summer day, it was a journey full of magic and surprises that all came together to capture this award-wining landscape image of the Vallée de Barèges in the Haute-Pyrénées.

The Pyrénées are known for their idiosyncratic weather and many micro-climates. The Vallée de Barèges is especially prone to the phenomenon of temperature inversion, when valleys become colder than the peaks, which protrude like islands from a sea of clouds. So was the case on the day of this photograph. Most of the valley was under low-level clouds and thick fog, and it was raining below. After checking the weather at different altitudes, I decided to venture out to higher altitudes and took the cable car ride to the Pic du Midi de Bigorre.

The Pic du Midi is recognized as an International Dark Sky Reserve and is a renowned astronomical center with an observatory, planetarium, museum, and suspended walkway brushing up against the clouds. When I reached the 2,877 meter (9,439 foot) summit the weather had cleared up, and I was able to gaze out over the most magnificent view of the Pyrénées range: 300 kilometers (186 miles) of peaks rose above the clouds, and pure mountain air filled my lungs.

Wanting to continue to immerse myself in my surroundings, I decided to hike down instead of taking the cable car ride back. As I was heading home after the long hike down the mountain with all my gear, I stumbled upon this beautiful fog event near the Col du Tourmalet, known as one of the “big three” stages in the Tour de France. I quickly set up my gear and stayed through dinner time and sunset to capture this magnificent phenomenon. At times like this, you have to react quickly and know exactly what you need to do to capture a VAST image.

This image won a Silver Award in the 2020 Epson International Pano Awards and was nominated as a finalist for the 14th Annual (2020) International Color Awards in the Nature Category.
