Photo Realism

Did you know that the New York Times has an impressive collection of historic images available as exhibition-quality fine art prints. When I saw the Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera photo in their archives, I was elated. It now graces my home, a moment caught in time from 1930 of one of my favorite artists, Frida Kahlo. The prints are created with Hahnemuhle Fine Art Pearl fiber-based paper, which resembles the look & feel of traditional silver-gelatin photo prints. Museums & galleries adhere to the same archival printing process for an enduring quality. I do also love the Edith Piaf photo (above left, but very pricey) and the pensive shot of Bob Dylan
