Are prints archival?
We strive to meet the current industry standards for archivability. Images are printed using dye based inks on professional archival media that is UV resistant. All materials used for matting of prints are certified as archival. To best ensure the longevity of your print, we always suggest using UV resistant glass when framing.

Yes - we are happy to sell un-matted prints and special sizes upon request. Please contact us for more information and ordering instructions.
I’m trying to match an existing print - do you still offer 13”x19” and 20”x24” sizes?

I have an original print - how much is it worth?
Many factors effect the value of a piece - the condition of the print, edition size, popularity of the subject matter, what comparable works have sold for recently, etc. Because of this we do not provide appraisals or values of the work. For an accurate appraisal of a works' value either for resale or insurance purposes - please contact a reputable art appraiser.

Isn't it against their religion for the Amish to be photographed?
This is perhaps the MOST frequently asked question....
The Amish are not a mono-culture and cannot be painted with the same brush. Within the Amish community there are many sects with a great deal of diversity amongst them. Within sects, and even within communities - families will have widely varying attitudes towards being photographed.
Bill cultivated relationships with several families in a remote Amish community, doing so gradually over the course of 40 years. While some were open to Bill and his camera, inviting him into their home and allowing him to document all aspects of their lives - others were less than pleased with being photographed. While Bill often "asked for forgiveness rather than permission", he was always respectful of the Amish and their beliefs.
