All prints are produced from the original negative or a high resolution scan from that negative.
Authentication takes several forms: hand-signed by the photographer, estate-stamped or embossed with an official seal. Every print we sell has been authenticated by the copyright holder - in most cases, directly by the individual photographer who captured the image. The copyright holder can also be a legal representative of the photographer, such as his or her or estate, a music label or a photo agency. Each print is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
