Paul Schatzberger made most of his photographs from 35mm or 6x7cm film negatives or transparencies until 2005, when the quality of digital photographs began to meet his needs and he started using digital equipment for new work.

After 2005 Paul printed each photograph individually using pigment inks on archival quality fibre-based papers with a traditional semi-gloss finish, making contemporary prints using digital technology while avoiding artificial manipulation and remaining faithful to the original image.

The photograph is mounted in acid-free conservation board, signed by the artist at the time of printing, and may include a purpose-made hardwood frame.

Paul latterly returned to photochemistry, working briefly with remaining stocks of obsolete peel-apart instant film (until his vintage Polaroid camera died), and then occasionally using the cyanotype process—when the sun shone.

There is a limited number of Paul’s photographs available for purchase, in sizes varying from 38 x 25cm to 80 x 60cm. Some prints are mounted, and a small number are framed. Please email if you would like to enquire about purchasing a photograph.
