Your prints are so powerful. You work with inkjets, as I do; how do you keep your inkjet prints from fading?

Hi Simca! Thanks!
In response to your excellent question, here's a short list:

1. archival UV inks
2. archival papers
3. optional UV spray coat
4. keep out of direct sunlight
5. frame in archival materials & use plexi or new UV resistant glass
6. store flat prints between archival papers

This pretty much applies to all works on paper, except#1 & #3.
