WERKDRUCK No. 22
Born on May 1, 1968 in Bordeaux, France, Alain Laboile is a photographer and father of six.
In 2004, as he needed to put together a portfolio of his work as a sculptor, he acquired a camera, and thus developped a taste for macrophotography, spurred by his passion for entomology.
Later on, he pointed his lens towards his growing family which became his major subject, be it in a realistic depiction of their atypical lifestyle in
"La Famille", or in bizarre stagings around a pond in "Réflexion autour du bassin".
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.
