Mario Pires's curator insight, January 21, 2014 6:36 AM

Artificially limiting the number of times a specified photography will be printed, is a way of making t scarce and increase it's market value on the art market and distinguish it from the sea of images we see every day. But this is perceived as a minority market, where only a few photographers, galleries and collectors profit from it, so it will not be of use to many professional photographers facing diminishing returns.
