1981 Luis Camnitzer of Pratt's Institute New-York came to Italy, teaching dust grain photogravure and multi-plate color-etching. We worked on light-sensitive plates with soft-or hardground and liftground. A photo-gravure is inked, wiped by hand and printed like an etching. It equals the Talbot-Klic process. Camnitzer's work is kept in the MoMA museum in New-York. End 1981 my Studio Atelier Le Carroz opened at Saint-Triphon. I continued to make etchings of farms, barns and Dîme Houses which I started in 1972, but now I added dust grain photogravure until '88. I also continued painting portraits or models of fashion designers like Jean-Paul Gaultier,Yves St Laurent, John Galliano, Manish Arora and Charlie Le Mindu.

In Barcelona I saw the paintings of Mir Y Trinxet. In february 2004 I painted en plein air the flowering almondtrees. 2006-2015 I traveled repeatedly to Bages in the South of France to paint small fishingboats or capture the Lake of Leucate, Parc des Dosses and the harbour of Collioure. Musée de l'Elysée Lausanne keeps 45 of my dust grain photogravures or 'héliogravures'. Musée Jenisch Vevey has 50 etchings in the Cabinet cantonal des estampes: multi-plate prints and aquatints, prepared and printed in Atelier Le Carroz by myself.
