"I have worked with Martin Axon on behalf of many artists since the mid 1980s including Robert Mapplethorpe and Adam Fuss among others. Martin Axon has a sensitivity and awareness in working with artists that results in a platinum print of the highest quality. In my opinion he is singular, there is no one working at this level in the art and photography world today."
"I have known and worked with Martin Axon for over 20 years and I have always appreciated the commitment and artistry he brings to every print. Working with the most delicate material he coaxes life out of the platinum material to make the most beautiful and visceral prints that will not only stand the test of time but will transcend the very notion of time."
"I love the medium of platinum printing for photography. It's rich, textual, full of depth, and immersed in the history. There are very few masters of this method of printing which requires an extremely elevated level of technical proficiency along with a sixth sense of what makes a photographic print work. Martin Axon is one of the rare. Gifted, confident, and
reliable, he is superb at what he does!"
"The blacks are blacker, the whites are whiter. It's photographically the most beautifull photographic object I have seen.
I haven't seen a better process, I think it's perfection in a certain way".
