    Nze and I decided to do a print exchange, he very kindly proposed this after I had purchased one of his prints on E bay.

    Well, me thinks I was better off sending him the money. I just got his prints and they are absolutely gorgeous! I thought I was doing good, but men, I have to say I still have a long way to go compared to Nze's prints.......ah well.....better get back on the saddle and keep on trying.

    Yes Jorge!

    I recently purchased an Nze print - - an absolutely marvelous image! Nze is a master of his art!

    Jorge,

    Nze and I did a print exchange a couple of years ago and as you now know his work is excellent! He even include an extra print!

    Since he is making a living selling his work just chalk his purchase up as a donation for a worthy artist. You are now one of his patrons.

    I know what you mean, Jorge.... supremely impressed and supremely depressed all at once. That's how I felt when I bought an 8x10 AZO contact print on ebay from George Provost. The print glowed with a quiet three dimensional brilliance that I could only dream of achieving. Stunning work. I promptly proceeded to buy 8 more of his prints and will buy more in the future. Check him out under "photopsyche" on ebay or do a search on AZO.

    I will have to check out Nze's work too, Jorge. Sounds really good.

    Thanks for the info.

    Christian Nze, APUG person who lives in Paris, France, I do believe.

    Had to specify the Paris, cause those Lone Star folks also have a Paris. D:

    Internationally recognized as well. A portfolio of his work was recently selected for publication in Double Exposure (www.doubleexposureonline.com) along with the works of several other APUGers, who work in alternative processes, including Kerik Kouklis and Carl Weese.

    Hey Jorge,
    Swap a print with me and your karmic debt will be paid in full. :D

    I bought one of Mr Nze prints and it holds its own next to prints by the cool local guys. I also bought one from Luca Paradisi and had to email him and apologise for the low price I paid.

    You are on Mateo. I have not seen Luca`s work and the scans do not seem to make his work justice. I just might have to bid on one of his prints.

    Greetings,

    I too purchased one of Nze's prints and it is beautiful!

    Jorge, I have never seen one of your prints in person, but I have seen images that you have posted. I think you are being humble!

    Regards, Pete

    Jorge,

    Any time you start to feel depressed, repeat over & over this personal Mantra that is just for you: "I am not on Steve Simmons christmas card list."
