Do we consider photography a collaborative job?
Alas! We speak only of “the artist”.
And photographers rarely mention those who immerse themselves in their universe in order to better transmit it.
For those who search in the shadows for the best tone of ink, the right hue for a frame, the appropriate height on the wall… we could call them the “last millimetre logistics”!
The often highly sensitive men and women who work in these “noble small trades” perhaps lack the ego needed to get themselves noticed, and to use the cinematographic metaphor dear to Bernard Plossu, there are no credits “at the end of the film” to honour them.
DK2R aims to present these professions to you in order to pay homage to them of course, but also to get across a full understanding of the essential and delicate role they play in the successful outcome of an exhibition, a print.
Let this journey also be a way of raising awareness that a badly presented beautiful collection of images is one doomed to be forgotten.
