"Canson® Infinity papers were a revelation to me. Because of their superior quality, they brought about a change in my exhibitions and the marketing of my work. The paper range is wide and very good; it offers everything a photographer who cares about the presentation of images could want. Canson stands for excellence in art reproductions. Once you try a Canson® Infinity medium, you stay with it."
