Are you looking for an attractive photo for your living room wall? Do you want to supplement your private collection with an unusual photo? Or offer an exceptional business gift? The Nederlands Fotomuseum provides the opportunity to order fibre-based prints of the photos in the collection.
The photos are printed by the museum’s own photographer, on high-quality barite paper in the darkroom. In doing so, he takes into account the way in which the photographer himself would have printed the photo. The hand of this ‘master printer’ guarantees that all original nuances of the photographic image are easily recognized and nothing is lost. The photos are not produced in limited editions but they bear an impression of a blind stamp of the Nederlands Fotomuseum. Normally, the photo section is printed as large as possible on a sheet of paper. However, account should be taken of a minimum margin of approx. 1 cm.
Choose from the more than 3 million negatives
The museum has a total of more than 3 million negatives in its collection, of which more than 110,000 have been digitized. You can view the digitized pictures in the picture databank. If you do not find your favourite photo there, then you can come to the museum and make your own choice (by appointment). More than 3 million negatives are available to you. You will find a photo related to almost every conceivable topic.
The museum also has expert members of staff who can search through the collection at your request to find the required or desired photo(s). This may involve extra costs, which will be discussed with you in advance of course.
The prices of a print of your choice differ from the prices of the photos in the selection. In the case of exceptional orders, the costs of searching may also be included. These extra costs will be discussed with you in advance. Delivery time amounts to approximately ten working days.
Ordering fibre-based prints online
You can order most pictures in the picture databank as a barite print. The photos displayed with a shopping trolley are for sale. You can order them directly online via the webshop.
