February 2019. Bolivia.
After 10 days on the Alti-Plano, we arrive at the Hostal de San Juan.
It's a house made entirely of salt! It's really well finished, and it's probably the best place we sleep in this whole adventure.
With Pascal, we settle down in a double room. There is room for at least 35 people here. The toilets and showers are just at the level of what we find at home. In short, luxury. The meal is just exceptional with a soup and especially egg patties and divine fries.
Everyone is tired of these intense days, but we still find time to offer a shoot to our hosts. Pascal knows how to do it now, and shows photos taken the previous days (what better ad?!). Our hosts are charming but I feel they are tired from their day. They have 3 children. The youngest at less than a year. The second must have 3 or 4 and he is quite turbulent (but just normal for his age). The biggest remained hidden. I see him later in his pajamas spinning.. :)
The mother stops for a moment, before putting the children to bed. She entrusts her fatigue of the day to my lens.
Almost 11 p.m.. it's time to go to bed.

…artist's proofs are printed in sizes that may vary.
Certificate of authenticity
Each print is sold with a certificate of authenticity, signed manually. The certificate of authenticity is an added value to your print. It guarantees the uniqueness of the limited edition photo and protects against the risk of falsification.
The objective is to guarantee the original and rare character of a work , which constitutes its value.
The work is printed on FineArt Canson Rag Photographique 310gr paper (or equivalent).
We use pigment inks, containing molecules of organic origin, encapsulated in a synthetic resin then placed in suspension in a liquid. The molecules of these pigments are much larger than those of dyes and therefore more resistant to light, humidity and gases (ozone among others). They meet the primary need for the preservation of prints.
Ready to hang (optional)
The work is laminated on a 3mm Aluminum plate (the most upscale), and mounted in an American box, for a striking result; it is then directly ready to be hung on the wall. If you want a different finish (no American body, no aluminum plate, that's also possible).
It is possible to pick up your unique print at the Studio, or to receive it directly at your home. Costs will be calculated automatically based on total weight and destination.
