The prints you receive are archival, chromogenic prints on a semi-matte paper with a longevity of 100+ years under normal light conditions.
The quoted dimensions refer to the paper size, and not the size of image contained within the paper. Each image is printed with a minimum 1/4" border to allow for framing, and ships with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.

Left Ring Finger, 2007
from the series Fingerprints
This image is from the series Fingerprints, in which each of my 10 fingerprints were reproduced using various materials and objects that hold significance to my past and my identity. The series was an attempt to create a portrait of myself containing both objective information and a subjective context for that information. Left Ring Finger was created out of mustard, shown along with slice of whole wheat bread that is reminiscent of my school years. As distant and trivial as many of my elementary school memories are, I can’t help but feel they have, in one way or another, influenced my life and my identity.
