Sito ufficiale:

Each Archive Box contains a unique choice of 10 images of Marina Faust's nearly 20-year collaboration with Martin Margiela. The images are re-appropriations of her photo-series done on assignment between 1990 and 2008. She looks at her material again today with a fresh and new point of view. The sources are photo prints, negatives, contact sheets, Polaroids, photocopies and digital material. Marina Faust was the only photographer having worked withMargiela throughout his whole career, which, besides other considerations, makes her archive unique.
She was invited by MOMU Belgium in 2016 to photograph the Hermes archive pieces for the book that accompanies the exhibition 'Margiela, the Hermes Years', in March 2017 in Antwerp. Photos out of her archive are also part of the book as well as of the exhibition that is now traveling to other museums.

The Archive Box is an edition of 30.
A signed and numbered certificate comes with each box.
Each print is signed on the back and the season of the collection is specified.
The prints are inkjet prints on acid free silk tissue paper lying on white mat acid free paper.
