Proceeds from prints in the Coast series will be donated to The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organization, developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. By utilizing the ocean currents to our advantage, our passive drifting systems are estimated to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years’ time. Launched on September 8, 2018 from San Francisco, System 001 intends to prove the concept of The Ocean Cleanup's technology in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the world's largest accumulation zone of ocean plastics - situated halfway between Hawaii and California. https://www.theoceancleanup.com This image is part of on ongoing series, shot on locations around the globe during my endeavours as a travelling photographer, I often seek out otherworldly and surreal environments. This work was photographed in Portugal. Title: Avant-garde Series: Coast Date of Work: 2016 Paper Type: Fuji Pearl (Metallic) Dimension: 100x100cm +10cm white border Edition: 1/10 Edition Size: 100x100cm Artist Proofs: # 1 A.P. Also available in smaller edition of 10 +1 A.P. ( 50x50cm) The work comes signed by the artist accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity. The work is printed using a Digital Type –C process on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Digital Pearl Paper. PEARL paper contains a very special component: pearly mica crystals. Based on the natural mica, they are covered with a thin layer of metal oxides, for example, titanium dioxide. Through an interplay of transparency, refraction, coating and multiple reflections, one can discern silver-white and metallic reflection effects. These lend pictures such an intense warmth and depth; they become a true sensation for the eye. With signed limited editions from Thor Elias Engelstad, every print is documented, and is issued with a Certificate of Authenticity. Digital C-prints are photographic prints made by exposing a sheet of Type-C photographic paper (e.g., Fuji Pearl) to light inside of a digital printer instead of to light projected by an enlarger. The digital C-print is then processed in a color processor just as a traditional C-print would be. While "digital C-print" is the common term for the process, both digital and traditional (optical) C-prints are properly termed "chromogenic prints." The paper is then developed in traditional darkroom chemistry. The result is an amazing true photographic print that is unsurpassed in sharpness, color accuracy and reproduction of detail while achieving the ultimate in image fidelity, exceeding the quality of traditional darkroom prints.
