The Natives

 

Thank you for your interest in purchasing signed or not signed original Denis Jockmans Fine Art Photography Prints.

 

Sale of photos of ethnic groups (they call themselves the Natives, or in Spanish Los Originarios) taken during my travels through Mexico. At the moment five groups are presented: the Purépecha (or Tarascos), the Maya Yucateca, the Maya Tsotsil, the Nahua of the State of Guerrero and the Rarámuri (or Tarahumara).

 

All art prints are available in different sizes and different and presentations and are as well unlimited as limited editions. The latter are delivered signed, numbered, with a stamp of authentication and accompanying certificates of authenticity and printed on museum-quality paper with high-quality ink. For more information, sizes and prizes here below.

 

It is a great experience to purchase and to own high resolution and high-quality physical prints, made to be felt with your fingers and to be hanged on your wall for generations to be seen. You can admire the fine details of the people I portrayed during my travels or of my artwork in which I put great effort.

For both I am always looking for excellence and I am proud of my work. Therefor I took time to investigate what would be the best way to present my work. I hope you enjoy your quality purchase.


These photos were also compiled in my book called "The Natives" (Los Originarios) which is for sale here (only in Spanish for the moment). You can see more pictures of the Natives here.

Purépecha

The Spaniards called them Tarascos but they refer themselves as P'urépechas, which in their language means "people". They are located in the Purépecha-Uruapan plateau of the Transversal Volcanic System in the center-north of the State of Michoacán.

More information about the Purépechas and my personal experience with them here (translated extract of my book The Natives).

It is believed to be derived from the terms maya' or mayab. The first is a reference to the name of the territory and is used with certain related words; the second has as a possible meaning "little", "not much", that is, the place where there were few people.
The Yucatec Maya are located in the States of Quintana Roo, Campeche and Yucatan.

The Tsotsiles are the batsil winiki'otik, "real men". The word Tsotsil derives from sots'il winik, "bat man", and the name comes from a legend that says that the ancestors of the Zinacantecos found a bat in the meadow and believed it to be god.

They inhabit the Highlands of the State of Chiapas. The Tsotsil territory is at the northwest and southwest of the city of San Cristóbal De Las Casas and its language is spoken in several communities such as Chamula, Zinacantan etc.

Nahuatl comes from the Nahua root (nawa), which in English means "clear sound" or "thing that sounds good." After Spanish, it is the second most spoken language in the State of Guerrero and is the indigenous language with the largest number of speakers in the country. Despite having the predominance, the Nahuatl language has dialectal variants.
They are found in the North-Central and Mountain regions of the State of Guerrero; its main settlements are in the Low Mountain, in the High Mountain, in the Depression of the Balsas and the Costa Chica.

More information about the Nahua and my personal experience with them here (translated extract of my book The Natives).

We call them Tarahumara, they call themselves Rarámuri, "runners on foot". It comes from the roots rare (foot) and muri (run), synonymous with people or humans.
They extend into the Sierra Madre Occidental; through the States of Chihuahua, southwest of Durango and part of the State of Sonora. As the Rarámuri are the most numerous group in the territory, that area is called Sierra Tarahumara. It is formed by high mountains and deep ravines.

The actual image is surrounded by a white borders from 1 to 2" / 2.5 to 5cm wide depending the image. You can choose prints without the white border for the same price but I recommend the white borders which protects the image from fingers when you transport it.

De author has of each sizes several E.d'A (Épreuve d'Artiste / AP: Artist's proof) and one BAT (Bon à Tirer / RTP: Ready to Print). APs and RTPs are not included in the count of a limited edition. By convention the artist will not sell these.

They are guaranteed for life.

 

Labeling:

Each print is personal hand-signed with an acid-free pen. On the white border area at the bottom just below and outside the actual image on the left I write the edition number of the print (e.g. " # 07/10 "), in the center the title and on the right my signature and the date of the printing (e.g. " 15 Apr 2019 "). If you desire to mat and frame, I left a space to avoid the text to be covered.

Prints without the white borders have only my signature written with an acid-free marker on the image itself below right.

On the back of the print, written on an acid-free sticker you receive more information like my full name, the date when the picture has been taken, which camera and resolution I used, where it was taken, size of print, paper and ink type.

This labeling will be constant.

 

Certifications and Registration:

Your purchased artwork will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity written and signed by Denis Jockmans with all the above information, and a Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity which certifies that a HM paper was used to print this photograph. The number and edition will be registered on Hahnemuhle’s "My Art Registry" here for reference and tracking purposes.

 

Digital Archives:

Most pictures are digital photos, which were made from uncompressed files (RAW data) of two professional cameras with two resolution ranges, 24.6 (Sony A900) and 42.4 megapixels (Sony A7R II). 8 or 16-bit output. The processed files have .psd format in most cases.

The other pictures are mostly taken with Fujichrome Velvia 100 35mm transparencies film which were digitalized by me with the professional Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED Film Scanner, at the highest resolution corresponding to 21 megapixels. The processed files have .tif format in most cases.

 

Printing:

All pictures are digitally printed on acid-free and lignin-free Hahnemüle museum-quality paper/Hahnemühle Digital Fine Art Collection with high-quality Epson archival pigment ink using professional Epson printers.

The prints are produced by Bindu Impresión de Arte in Mexico City, Mexico. I personally assist with the Bindu team.

Art buyers and collectors as well as fine art photographers prefer excellent durable, archival stability ISO 9706 conform museum quality for highest age resistance, high water-resistant characteristics and 100 % rag/cotton fiber (not Resin Coated) papers.

They are heftier and thicker for their sheer beauty and substantial, more tactile feel as well as other characteristics such as surface texture. Paperweight and thickness set fine photographic and art papers apart from their much thinner, plastic counterparts such as the RC glossy, luster, satin, or pearl papers.

 

Paper:

For the Natives series I use the matte Photo Rag® Ultra Smooth (datasheet), 305 gsm (grams per square meter) and 0.48 mm thick paper. It's an especially smooth, silky soft feeling, discreet, very finely textured surface white cotton paper made for high-quality FineArt inkjet pigment system printing.

The matte premium inkjet coating guarantees extraordinary print results with impressive reproduction of color, subtle and nuanced color gradations, details and very deep black (DMax). Contains moderate OBA (Optical Brightening Agents).

 

Ink:

High-quality Epson Ultrachrome HD archival stable pigment-based (not dye-based) ink. Acid-free, instant dry, high water-resistant characteristics, resistance against fading and smudging, stable in UV light and is guaranteed for life.

 

Mounting and Framing:

If you desire, your prints can be professionally mounted and framed by the Bindu team and with my assistance.

All material used are acid-free which include the carton and the white board under and over the print, a simple wooden frame and a UV plexiglass cover. Due to the additional weight there will be an extra charge to the shipping.

In addition, it applies only to those cases in which I keep the original files (I never delete any original files or get rid of my negatives, but it cannot be excluded that there are accidental losses or other causes beyond my control).
