Photography: Color, Digital, C-type on Paper.
Taken in the Timanfaya National Park, this dramatic image captures the Montañas del Fuego (the ‘Fire Mountains’) a chain of mostly dormant and extinct volcanoes - only Mt Timanfaya itself remains active. Though these cones and craters are surrounded by what, after over 250 years, are still largely desolate lava fields, the first signs of life can be spied here and there, springing up from the barren lava. The site of truly stupendous volcanic activity in the 1730s - it lasted for six years and saw the eruption of 100 volcanoes, laying waste to almost 20 square miles of fertile land, together with a number of villages - the Timanfaya National Park covers almost a quarter of Lanzarote, one of the larger islands of the Canary Archipelago.
For the first time, this image is being offered for sale to collectors and lovers of beautiful photographs as a limited edition, fine-art print of 1/10.
This image was taken using a Canon full-frame digital camera. Under the supervision of the photographer, it is being printed by London fine art printers, Bayeux Ltd, deploying C-Print digital technology and using a rather special Fujicolour Crystal Archive Glossy Metallic paper. The prints have extraordinary colour densities, with good contrast, and hold even the finest detail with exceptional image stability. Each image is printed on an oversized A1 sheet with white borders and can be mounted like any other silver halide stock: prints can be laminated or displayed behind glass, ideally using non-reflecting, gallery glass, but will also look impressive mounted on an aluminium sheet.
Numbered limited edition; signed, dated and titled on the back.
