About The Artwork

An image of leaves of the common landscape plant the hosta. The hosta leaves have wilted as the result of a strong frost and are lying amid oak leaves which have fallen on and around them. The image, photographed in the style of Weston and Adams, is printed on 17"X22" mat surface fine art paper with archival pigment inks. It is one of a possible edition of 50 plus two artist's proofs. There is a border of 1 surrounding the image. It is titled and numbered on the lower left, and signed and dated on the lower right, in pencil. It is supplied with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. The print is shipped in a large sturdy shipping tube, interleaved with glassine. In 2009, it won first place (Gold Award) in Black and White magazine's Single Image Contest. It was part of five image submissions that won first place awards in the Lucies (The International Photography Contest) in 2008, and the Prix de la Photographie Paris in 2009, where it won the entire nature division. It hung in exhibition in Paris in the winners exhibition.

Mr. Martin is a citizen of the USA, having been born in upstate New York State and spending his youth in the small rural village of Clinton. Nature, such as as crops, dairy farms, and woods, where he could hunt and fish surrounded the village, and his parents and grandparents were avid gardeners. Because of this exposure, and frequent trips to their summering spot in the Adirondack Mountains, nature became a part of him. Naturally, it would become expressed though his art, which was inspired by his father, a part time professional photographer and amateur watercolor painter. When he was young, professional cameras were ever present, as well as a fully equipped darkroom. There was a mystique about photography, and "that place", that he wanted to know, so he convinced his father to teach him. Thus began a life long career as a fine art photographer. Later, he went on to study fine art photography at college, and earn an MFA in photography so as to be able to teach photography on the college level, have time to produce his work, and earn a living from what he loved. He was a fine art photography teacher for over thirty years, and is now retired, having done so in 2008, to concentrate full time on his work. Over the years, Mr. Martin has won numerous awards and feature articles have been published about him in national and international publications. Recently, his pictures have been featured in the UK, Australia, and the USA. His flora images of hosta plants have won first place awards in the Prix de la Photographie, Paris, the International Photography Awards (The Lucies), and the International Garden Photographer of the Year.
