Announcing Open Edition Fine Art Portfolios

I am extremely pleased today to be announcing the availability of Print Portfolios. Fine art photographic prints of my photography have been available for some years now through galleries both here in Australia and overseas. This is the first time however that I am offering Portfolios of my work directly through my website.

Portfolios are a collection of loose, unbound original fine art pigment on paper prints that when viewed as a group form a collective project. Each portfolio contains a title page, then typically a colophon and statement about the project. A selection of finished fine art prints forms the project body of work. The photographs themselves are intended to be seen as a group, such as one would find in a book. However, they are loose prints designed to be held in the hand and kept together in a fine art package.

Each portfolio cover is made from custom embossed acid-free archival art paper. The assembly uses only archival, acid-free materials to ensure the long life of the prints contained inside. Prints can be stored in the portfolio cover, or removed, matted and framed.

Portfolios are printed on 100% cotton acid-free A4 Museo Portfolio Rag 300gsm Fine Art paper with a Canon IPF6350 Large format printer using Canon LUCIA long-life pigment inks. Each print is made with the same exacting care and meticulous attention to detail as my large format prints that are available exclusively through galleries. Portfolios are individually numbered, open edition and are available for $250USD each including shipping anywhere in the world.

The first two Portfolios to be made available are on the Arctic Fox and the Polar Bear. Each Portfolio contains six open edition fine-art prints as well as title page, colophon and statement about the project.

You can download a free high resolution Digital PDF preview of each Portfolio in the Store on my website. To order your portfolio please email me at info@jholko.com_H2_6917-Edit



New Website Launch for

I am extremely pleased today to be launching my new Live-Books HTML 5 mobile responsive website at and (all three links will take you to the same new website). The move to an all new HTML 5 platform has been some time in the works (quite honestly it is at least twelve months overdue). When I launched my original flash website many years ago, it was at the cutting edge of internet website technology. Flash offered features difficult or impossible to achieve via other platforms. It also offered some degree of protection against unauthorised use of photographs. The world and web have long since moved on however and with so many people now choosing to do their browsing from tablet and other mobile devices (which, in the majority do not support Flash) the move to a mobile responsive platform has become mandatory. Over the years my previous flash based website has undergone numerous updates – many of which added complexity that has been difficult to replicate in HTML5. Now these barriers no longer exist and we can offer all of the functionality I was looking for in a fully mobile aware and mobile responsive site. There are many other fringe benefits in the move to the new HTML platform including much larger images, faster loading times and the new Store. To help celebrate the launch of the new site I have some new Folios that are now available for sale. Orders for these still need to be placed manually via email until such time as the e-commerce part of the web-build is complete. If you would like to order one or more of the Folios please just email me in the meantime. I want to thank Live-Books for their continued support over the years and for their efforts in helping me to transition to the new platform and site.  If you stop past for a look please be sure to drop me a note and let me know what you
