labeling dp- and vp- photographs

As I will not only create digital photography in the future but also photographs in a purely analogue way, I would like to define to the visitors of my website and the buyers of my photographs what lies in the difference between a digital print and a vintage print.

Digital Print (dp)
"A digital print is a photograph that first emerges as a digital file using a digital camera, then digitally developed and edited by computer, and finally digital printed, in my case by use of inkjet printing. With a dp, the once-created photograph can be reproduced "exactly" at any time, so it can be reprinted and therefore has no unique character. To reduce my dp to a certain amount of prints, each dp-print is limited to 26 pieces and 4 artist proofs. "


Vintage Print (vp)
A vintage print was recorded on an analog negative using an analogue Kanmera and then transferred by hand to light-sensitive photographic paper in the darkroom. A vp is in contrast to the dp never exactly reproducible and therefore always represents a unique piece. Each vp has therefore in contrast to the dp a certain aura and is real manual work and is always a unique piece by the analogue operation in the darkroom. Each additional hand print of the same negative, is always unique because of the manual work in the analogue mode of operation. "

For future image publications here on the website, the individual photographs are marked as dp (digital process - digital print) or vp (vintage process - vintage print).
