Flowers Displayed in a Window, Stein Am Rhein, Switzerland, 2019

100.00 $

 I don’t normally photograph in color. I tend to use black and white photography to tell the stories that I see out in the world. However, during during a trip to Switzerland I kept seeing paintings everywhere. That may have been influenced by the years I spent learning about European paintings. Regardless, after returning to America as I reviewed the relatively few digital images I had made abroad I found it difficult to see them as black and white images. For instance, take this window with the reflections distorted in the old glass. Even the flowers displayed from the other side take on an altered reality. Because of the textures of the chipping paint, the distorted glass, and the generally muted colors it appears to be much closer to a painting than a photograph. It’s because of these imperfections that I photographed it. It’s because of these rough aspects that I saw life in it. It’s because I looked at it, I saw another world in it.

Image Size: 12in x 14.6 in (30.5 x 37 cm)
Print Size: 13in x 19 in (33 x 48.26 cm)
Paper: Epson Velvet Fine Art (260 gsm)
Composition: Cotton Rag
Surface: Textured Matte

Special Note: I fell in love with the grain that came from the film I was using. When I was working on the scanned image the grain produced a texture that felt more like a work of pastel on a rough toothed paper. Papers such as Epson’s Velvet Fine Art have a textured surface that allowed me to really work with that illusion. 

Each print comes with a signed certificate of authenticity which ensures that I have carefully examined every inch of it and believe it to be an exceptionally fine print.
