“When you are making a photograph, you are taking a few hours, sometimes just a few minutes, of a person’s life. But you are not part of their lives; you are a kind of witness within time and space.”

– Joel-Peter Witkin

  1. Hi, one question:

    For international artists, if they get selected for the exhibition, what is the proccess? I mean, how do you guys get the actual photograph to be presented at the gallery? who will print it/frame it? you guys, or the artist have to send you the piece all the way to Georgia already framed?

    1. Camille,

      You may send your print to us, of course, but we do work with a noted framer and printer in our area, also. If you were to choose to do that I would gladly put you in touch with them and remove myself from the middle! Thanks!
