Combine our expertise and skill of this traditional craft with the use of new technologies
"Techniques and technologies are constantly evolving and we have to operate with modern times so that our business continues to exist. Building on this idea, I became interested in new digital technologies to apply them to my famlily profession of "enlarger-reducer".
Recently, these developments allowed me to respond to current Art projects which would habe been, until then, to much complex or even impossible to implement with the pantograph . These new techniques preserve the original model and can, in some cases, help to reduce delays and costs of implementation.
However,our knowledge and
manual abilities in this field remain essential as the machine
alone cannot bring life to a Work !
Through generations, "enlarger-reducer" profession - uncommon indeed even unique discipline - , will remain one of the fundamental components of our expertise."
