Orders are printed on demand in The Netherlands at the time of ordering. So you order and pay for the print and I then arrange the production and shipping for you. This saves me from having to keep stock, while at the same time allowing me to offer a bigger variety of sizes and materials. It’s a win for both of us!
Because of this process, please allow up to 2 weeks for the products to arrive. I will try my best to ship out your precious Fine Art Prints as soon as I can though.
The available papers for the photo prints are Hahnemüle Rag (Matt) and Hahnemüle Baryta (Gloss). The prints come with a white border, though framed prints are printed without the border. Trust me, it looks nicer that way. This also means that framed prints will be signed and dated on the back of the frame.
Since we’re on the subject anyway, framed prints are mounted to 1mm thick aluminium and installed in a black wooden frame. The frames have no glass in front of the print so you get the best vision on the texture and quality of the paper. The mounting of the print makes it seem like it floats inside the frame. If this does not suit your style, or prefer to protect your print with a glass front, you can always order the Fine Art Print on the paper of your choosing and simply find a frame yourself.
Hahnemüle has been making fine art papers since 1584. Yes, that long. In that time they have focussed solely on making paper, so they know what they’re doing. All the prints from my store are made on these museum quality fine art archival papers. They will not fade, nor yellow and will look good for a very, very long time.
If you combine this paper with a quality frame, your print will definitely withstand the test of time.
About the photo
That’s… an interesting congregation of vegetation.
I mean, those hedges make sense. They belong there. In fact, they can be found practically everywhere. That bamboo though… and those big palmy leaves. Nah, that’s definitely something alien. Definitely not a common sight in The Netherlands. Then, glancing over at the curb at the bottom of the photo, it appears all this flora grows on the same property as well. I guess somebody likes their environments as eclectic as possible.
Talking about eclecticity, this photo homes quite a few different textures. First the blue sky with those puffy clouds, indicating that this is definitely taken on a warm summer day. Secondly, of course, those rampant bamboo sprouts taking up a solid section of the composition. Nicely balancing next to those fanning palm leaves.
Then, suddenly, that sign sticking its head(?) up from behind the hedge. Why is that fence on that person’s property? Why isn’t it in the public domain like it’s supposed to? If it was, we would’ve been able to see the pole it rests on. Instead, it’s hidden in the bush, merely revealing the essentials. A warning for the viewer. For what though?
As we move our eyes down the hedge we’ve referenced quite a bit by now, our vision rests on the neatly placed bricks on the ground. Ah! This must be some kind of parking space then. Or at least it was, before the sign specifically forbade it. And it counts for both ways as well. A very rigorous sign this is. Oh, what if, and I’m guessing here, this person wanted to reserve that parking space for themselves? Simply placing a sign at the edge of their property, warning any possible takers that this parking space is not for the public. I’m not sure this is the case but in my head, it could be true. That’s good enough for me.
About The Silence Around
The Silence Around is a photography project made during the first half of 2020. The images focus on peaceful and tranquil scenes and are almost completely devoid of people. The three main images are 360 degrees panoramic photographs, which were mounted on the inside of a closed circle. This allowed people to step into the photo and experience the tranquility of the scene for themselves. In addition, 30 images accompanied the panoramas. Together they painted a colourful picture (pun intended) of my experience during the creation of the project.
