I believe that a photograph really comes alive only when printed, and that Fine Art Prints are true works of art.
A Fine Art Print is the result of years of experience photographing, developing and printing: as every work of art it deserves to be unique, like a painting.
Radically redefining the concept of Limited Edition, every Fine Art print I create is a single piece edition. Available in just ONE copy per size, like a painting. Priced per linear meter, like a painting. Numbered and signed by hand, like a painting. Certified, like a painting. Increasing in price every year to ensure your investment’s value, like a painting.
My Fine Art Prints are created by Certified EPSON Digigraphie Labs, for the best print quality available. Printed on heavy, textured Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper, the best papers available. Certified by a Digigraphie Certificate of Authenticity with both an embossed Digigraphie stamp on the print itself and a Hahnemuhle hologram sticker replied on print and Certificate, the most serious certification for Fine Art Prints worldwide.
My Limited Edition Fine Art Prints are single pieces, available in ONE copy only per each of three basic sizes:
THE GRAND, 40 x 60 cm or 15.7 x 23.6 in THE GIANT, 60 x 90 cm, 23.6 x 35.4 in THE COLOSSAL, 80 x 120 cm or 31.4 x 47.2 in
Please note: the measures above refer to a 3:2 ratio photograph. Every finished print’s actual size may vary according to each photograph’s different aspect ratio. Actual print area for each artwork is displayed in each artwork’s dedicated page. Photographs will be delivered with white space around the printed area to allow for matting and framing.
Please CONTACT ME directly for any questions and for customised artworks.

A photographer interprets the world through his photographs; a viewer then reads them and interprets them according to his own experiences. Writing my own captions would have been like reinterpreting myself: I thought it more interesting to offer you a different interpretation of my photographs, and for that I needed a writer. Participants in my LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS know my wife Zeynep as my indispensable assistant; not many know that besides being a keen photographer she also is a published author (see her blog HERE), spending half of her time on her books and the other half assisting me in the field. Preparing my Vieri Bottazzini Fine Art project, it came naturally to me to ask her to be part of it: I am very happy to say that she graciously agreed, a cooperation resulting in the 3-line story enriching each photograph in the website.
For exhibitions and for promotional purposes only, I reserve the right to print Artist’s Proof copies of the artworks in my catalogue. I believe that Artist’s Proofs should not become an excuse to sell more copies of a Limited Edition artwork: therefore, they are not for sale and they never will be.
To avoid risks of damage in transit, by default my artworks can only be purchased print-only, without mat and frame. However, matting and framing can be done as a special order: CONTACT ME directly for more information and for a quote.
