Art Description

Photography: Black & White and Photo on Paper.

Just like life... trying to make a splash that will be noticed, but without the effort the pebble's impact is lost in the turmoil of breaking waves. Much determination is necessary to reach the calmer waters beyond, and so make an impact that will be seen. Here, the effort is great, jumping with every attempt for further reach, and in time as strength and technique and mental fortitude grows, the goal will be achieved.

I took this photograph on a family trip using one of my vintage 35mm film cameras, a Canon P with a Jupiter 12 lens. I developed the film myself then scanned and readied the image for printing.

I like this analogue / digital process because it allows me to take the photograph in my favourite traditional way but removes the need for me to be stuck in a darkroom with my enlarger for ages tweaking contrast with filters and different paper grades. This way I know it will be printed looking exactly how I want it to, and with the excellent archival life expectancy that modern prints and paper carry.

This is a unique item, a 13.5" x 9" sized giclee print on 15" x 11" matt finish Hahnemuhle Photo Rag (an archive quality heavy weight paper). Each print is numbered and signed in archival pigment ink below the image in the surrounding white-space border.

Although unsigned print copies may (or may not) be made at a future date, this is the only signed original photograph that will be created.

Incidentally, the colour version of this image was selected by Vogue Italia for inclusion on the PhotoVogue section of their website where it is possible to view at a larger size: http://www.vogue.it/en/photovogue/Portfolio/c9daec28-5243-4f86-ace5-74a4b0c19b14/Fullscreen
