“Harold Davis’ ethereal floral arrangements have a purity and translucence that borders on spiritual.”—Peter Kolonia, Popular Photo Magazine

Harold’s over-sized original prints are as unique as his digital photographic techniques. He creates very large prints on unusual substrates such as pearlized metallic and washi rice papers. Davis states, I believe that nothing like my prints has ever been seen before. They simply could not have been created until recently. I’ve been able to innovate in a domain where many techniques and crafts have come together for the first time. My prints are made meticulously, and have a 200-year archival rating for ink and paper if they are handled properly.

Here’s what people say about their Harold Davis print:

More about Harold Davis prints:

Harold’s prints are unconditionally warrantied. Harold states: “I stand by my work. I want you to be completely ecstatic. If you are not satisfied with your print in any way or for any reason, please return it in as-new condition within one year for a no-questions-asked refund or exchange.”

Each print is individually made with a great deal of care using the best archival materials on paper we feel is most appropriate to the particular image and your image placement following our initial consultation.

Even the ink Harold uses to sign his prints is acid free.

Note: We always allow a little paper margin around my prints for Harold’s hand signature, so it can be overmatted when you frame the piece.

What will your Harold Davis print be worth 50 years from now?

During the many years that Edward Weston and Ansel Adams were active, you could have bought one of their prints for a few hundred dollars (at most). These prints sell for tens—or hundreds—of thousands of dollars at auction today.

It’s impossible to know the future, but we believe that original Harold Davis prints will have ongoing value. These prints are created to last using archival materials and inks that are rated for at least 200 years. In this studio we do not take shortcuts.

Framing your Harold Davis print:

Many people have asked about framing their Harold Davis print. We always recommend archival framing using acid-free materials and glass that provides UV protection. This is sometimes called “museum” or “conservation” framing.

Note that we do not provide framing services. Harold states: “I am an artist and a photographer, not a framer. I want you to work with a professional framer to make your own choices depending on where you will hang my prints and I don’t want to build a hidden markup into what I would have to charge for framing.”
