Who We Are
We are a family owned print and licensing company with over 30,000 “untethered” images authored / created by our originator (Barry Elz) and managed by Barry & Carolyn’s son, Joshua Elz. On several occasions, Carolyn appears as the subject in our photography and she also styled alongside Barry while creating the majority of these images.
All of our image files are scanned and printed from the original film spanning 1973-1998. In some instances, we have original era silver gel prints and polaroids. Our vintage images, some of which are not for print sale but still uploaded here to demonstrate the scope of Barry's photography, have been created in a classic, carefully constructed manner with composition and lighting being the primary artistic objective. The images within these archives represent a great deal of development in photographic technology, and also are an irreplaceable piece of history.
What We Offer
We are offering for the first time, "Limited "Edition", digital archival pigment prints on fine art, smooth, matte Hahnemuehle paper, printed by Barry himself. And "Open Edition" (standard 8” x 10” & 11” x 14” print) printed on Canon archival luster paper, signed and dated on the front when the image was created. We offer these prints matted, in standard frames with tempered glass.
Panoramic sized images have different height measurements so the widths will remain consistent with our listed sizes and all of these final prints will have approximately a 1” white border (inside of the mat).
Our Limited Edition prints are released in a series of 125. Each print is custom printed, signed, numbered, and dated on the front as well as signed, dated and stamped on the reverse with a label description.
We can also print any custom size using different printing facilities and on numerous types of surfaces including metal and acrylic.
Our print offerings are primarily intended for fine art usage at home or office and not for endorsements or advertising. However, if you have a specific purpose in mind other than wall art we will be very clear regarding model/subject releases. Many of the images belong entirely to us including model releases and all prints are accompanied by a descriptive usage document.
Please communicate with us regarding any licensing or usage you may have in mind other than wall art and we can determine through our legal counsel what is possible with any of our images.
At your request, we can also search our extensive film library for images that are not already uploaded to our site here. Many of the individual image files are part of a larger grouping or versioning of a particular photography concept.
