Straight from Eric Kim’s photography archive, we will release 40 numbered artist proofs of Eric Kim’s iconic Laughing Lady photograph.

Brian Milo in his Printing Atelier

Printed in Chicago by Brian Milo, each individually-made 5×7-inch print is made via the ‘Giclée printing’ method, with UltraChrome K3 archival ink on 96-pound gloss paper — the heaviest and thickest photographic paper available in existence.

This printing method brings the vivid colors to life and the weight contributes to the Haptic Experience.

This print is accompanied by the Contact Sheet to reveal the artistic process behind the image.
