I have a 4 metre long photograph that needs framing. The gallery we bought it from in China says we should absolutely not cut it in half. The framer we are using (recommended by the dealer) says that not only is this really the safest option but that Gursky, Hofer etc. have to do that to their works too.
His idea is to cut the photo in half and diasec both pieces before assembling them back together in a frame. The alternative is to mount the photo on aluminium but then we would need a perspex protector cover or something and sheets of perspex don't come that long.
Basically, if it's good enough for a Gursky cutting my photo is fine with me. But I wanted to check to see if anyone out there knows....
Many thanks, Nerida
