Quality is one of the most important factors for us at Crystal Palace Productions. The quality of our products, services, and collaboration with other firms, artists, institutions and, generally, the quality of lives. That’s why, when deciding to purchase photographs by Olga Żmijewska, you are guaranteed to receive the highest quality prints on gallery-quality photographic paper along with a certificate of authenticity. Today, we’re introducing a new form into our offer – photographs printed on Dibond®. This form does not require any frame mounting and is ready to hang to beautifully decorate any space.
In Dibond aluminium composite panels, the photos are printed on the highest quality, traditional Kodak photographic paper with a UV protective laminate. Pictures printed in this way are then mounted onto a lightweight, durable and sturdy aluminium Dibond panel. On the back of the panel there are special strips (split-battens) which are cut at an angle and lock together, placing the photo panel 20mm from the wall, giving an aesthetic, frameless look. This is how photos are often mounted in galleries, museums, and outdoor exhibitions, but in offices and homes, too. It’s the perfect way to display exceptional photographs in a hard-wearing, long-lasting and fade-resistant way. These prints are ideal for kitchens and bathrooms since they can withstand high heat and humidity.
• Technology: Lambda photographic printing.
• Paper: traditional, high quality Kodak photographic paper.
• High quality, UV fade resistant laminate.
• Prints are adhered securely to a stable and rigid aluminium Dibond panel.
• Special mounting system gives a sleek, floating look where aluminium strips (split-battens) are fixed approximately 20 mm away from the wall. These prints are ready to hang and do not need to be framed.
All the photographs available at the store can also be ordered on Dibond. We hope you enjoy our work and we look forward to your custom!
What would you say about an even larger photograph format?
Crystal Palace Productions is making another, this time truly massive, step forward. One could say, a large-format step forward. We are just embarking on the production and sale of 100x160cm photographs!
The first work that has been printed for us by our partner studio Printed.com from Warsaw is the “Homecoming” motif, which presents itself brilliantly in this format.
It is now available to order on our Online Store.
The day before my 37th Birthday, that is, on 2nd November 2018, I treated myself to something exceptional and took part in the vernissage of the exhibition 100 Jahre – 100 Augenblicke: Polen heute (100 years – 100 glances: Poland today), held in the beautiful, post-industrial interiors of the public library in Frankfurt Sachsenhausen. One hundred photographs depicting contemporary Poland, including 9 photographs of my authorship, were displayed at the exhibition commemorating the centenary of the Republic of Poland regaining independence.
At the event under the patronage of the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Cologne and opened by His Excellency Consul General of the Republic of Poland, Jan Sobczak, Exhibition guests could view four themes from the Silesia series and five themes from the Varmia series. The Cumulus theme, 80 cm x 80 cm, introduced the exhibition.
Crystal Palace Productions will soon launch its online store where you will be able to purchase limited editions of prints and copies as well as my own postcards with motifs of my family village, Idzbark, and environs.
Here are the first six, which are now available directly from me in the small village of Idzbark:
I received the prints and copies from Whitewall in Düsseldorf the day before yesterday!
They are A4 in size and will form my photography portfolio.
Before I present them to you, I am getting to know the properties of different paper types on which the prints and copies have been ordered. This is an extremely important part of the artist’s work on a photograph because each type of paper has different properties, which have a tremendous impact on the final quality and appearance of the photograph.
Choosing the right paper for the job is the last key detail of the creative process in photography.
What an eventful winter it was!
Before I launch the Crystal Palace Productions website, which will also have an online store, I am testing different copy formats and photographic papers, and exploring the range of options for working with photolabs in Poland and abroad.
Finally, it seems that I can go full steam ahead!
I will soon choose the photos for my portfolio and order the prints and copies; in the meantime, however, I would like to share a few impressions with you from the preparations.
The low winter sun is a wonderful ally of mine – just look at those long shadows!
