WERKDRUCK No. 19
Séverine Lenhard was born in Toulouse on 22 February 1975. Her first steps in photography, she cannot remember them. At a very young age she used to take her mother's camera to go hunting for shots and collecting pictures. As a teenager she joined the ''SNCF's (French Rail Network) photo club'', thanks to her dad who was working on trains, where she would mix with adults who came to find some distraction from their professional life. There she learned the basics, discovered the joys of the darkroom and the magic that light makes appear on photographic paper. From that moment on, she kept going with even more intensity. During her high school years, Séverine Lenhard would go to indie rock concerts with her camera around her neck. For 10 years she shot photos at concerts and attended classes in a Fine Arts school whilst studying history and geography at university to eventually take up a career as a school archivist. Due to the digital revolution and the obligations of her job, the camera was for a while left aside and seldom taken out despite the passion waiting to be awakened. Until the birth of her first child, and very soon of her second one. The mother, as any other mom whose children's every move, look or improvement never ceases to fascinate, couldn't resist the impulse of her photographer's eye. Séverine Lenhard began to build the memory of a childhood by questioning over and over again the daily life of her little family. Through a few local exhibitions, artists-friends commissioning her art, a visibility stretching to social networks, Séverine Lenhard's work is slowly gaining a faithful audience who are being charmed by her original look at childhood.
Chief Editor and special advisor for VEVAIS-WERKDRUCK (photography) is the renowned photographer Jock Sturges.
Project editors include acclaimed poet and photo historian, Prof. John Wood, poet and photography critic, Steven Brown, and Alexander Scholz.
VEVAIS-WERKDRUCK books consist of twenty images which highlight astonishing work from both new and renowned painters, photographers, and graphic designers. Each hardcover book (approx. 30 x 43 cm) is bound by hand with Japanese binding, signed and numbered by the artist, and published in an edition of 300 copies.
Because of the sophisticated printing methods involved, each print is unique, an original. Scholz uses the world's best reproduction/photographic printing techniques. Digital files undergo traditional darkroom chemistries and develop on paper with red, green, and blue light (C-Prints). Some will be printed as pigment print or as UV print. Black and White pictures will be also presented on Baryta paper. Before binding, in some books the prints are mounted fully on special boards. For pigment prints, Scholz works with Hahnemühle paper and for UV-prints (digital screen printing), Scheufelen paper. Some books will be printed with a special digital color technology on Munken, a Swedish paper.
Scholz works with the printers Ralf Lenk / Scancolor and Max van Pham / Fine Art Factory—dedicated artisans who always find innovate ways to produce perfect pictures. Given the unparalleled production and specialization involved, Edition GALERIE VEVAIS guarantees the quality of these prints for up to 100 years.
For collectors of this stunning series WERKDRUCK, edition GALERIE VEVAIS offers an exclusive display of acrylic glass which doubles as a minimalistic sculpture for private living rooms, galleries, and libraries. The basic model for this acrylic stand holds four VEVAIS-Werdruck books. But for those who need more space, the basic model can be extended in two ways. By standing the sculpture in one line or by facing the corners inward, you can add four more books to your collection for a total of eight. The second model can be extended to a more dimensional sculpture of unlimited capacity.
The first thirty copies will sell for approx. 560 Euros, after which the price will increase.
