The final artwork is digitally printed onto Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper, a high-quality, 100% cotton fine art paper that is both acid-free and lignin-free, ensuring the print's longevity and colour stability. The Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper is revered for its velvety matte finish, which adds an unparalleled richness and depth to the blacks, while preserving the delicate whites and grays that give this black and white photograph its stunning tonal range.
