Taking photographs since the age of 12, French born Laurent Girard has been one of the world's most sought-after master black and white printers for decades. Laurent is the former owner of New York's legendary Lexington Labs, printing for everyone from Richard Avedon, Peter Beard, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, Bert Stern, Herb Ritts to Bruce Davidson, Nicholas Vreeland and Patti Smith (his impressive client list here!). In 2002, he merged Lexington Labs with Coloredge, and, in 2008, Laurent joined Griffin Editions, providing Fine Art Photographic Printing for Artists, Museums and Galleries (their blog).

I am enjoying the group of Bears. They look so wild and alive in the cold and icy atmosphere.

For a subject which has been teated so many many times, here's the proof that only the way to look can make the diference ! These statues are living. Beautifull !

i remember a friend of mine that made a series of statues . this is a tricky work , seems to be easy , but all he did got a bit vulgar .

this Robert Burns's series is wonderful . He gave so beautiful values for every detail of texture and light .
how did i lose this post ?
