What is the purpose of La Maison de l'argentique?
La Maison de l'argentique was founded in 2020 by Cyril Manzini. Himself a photographer, he wishes to develop the art gallery by soon representing 10 photographers.
The goal is also to perpetuate a traditional know-how by offering silver art prints in very small editions for the vast majority.
We also offer non-limited large format Polaroid reproductions for smaller budgets.
Where is La Maison de l'argentique based?
The gallery is currently only online but we are based in Paris.
How are silver prints made?
They are made by hand in the traditional way in a darkroom by the artist or a workshop with which we work for large formats.
How are polaroid prints made ?
From the original Polaroid, we scan it then we make the fine-art print on natural art paper. We do not modify the colors of the Polaroid so that your experience is as close as possible to the original.
How are the photos sent ?
I want to collect the work in Paris, is this possible?
