Brooklyn Bridge in the Rain with Taxi and Flag
Modern Impressionist Photographs of iconic locations around America. I shoot these scenes through the window of a moving car in the rain. I had driven up to NYC and was only staying one night and I prayed that would rain just enough that I could get a shot of the Brooklyn Bridge the next day. When I woke up it was raining but was forecast to stop soon and I was staying on the Upper West Side so I had to hurry. I crossed over the bridge to Brooklyn, turned around and as I was driving over the bridge towards Manhattan I got this shot. A few minutes later it stopped raining.
I have always loved impressionist painting and I wanted to take their ethos and apply it to a modern art form such as photography. The smaller prints are on archival photo paper with archival ink. For the larger prints (24x36 and up) I use a printing process with a best-of-class Lambda digital enlarger and Kodak or Fuji paper creating Silver Halide photographic prints. This is called Chromogenic printing or C-Prints. When there is a matte it is an all-white linen and is acid free. The acrylic/glass in the frame filters out UV so the image will not fade due to UV rays.
I print and sell the images four ways: Unframed; Printed on Acrylic; Printed on Aluminum and finally, Fully Framed Prints printed on paper. For fully framed prints, I offer two options: White Lacquer frames or Silver wood frames. With both framed options the mattes are 4 inches wide on all sides. The size listed is the IMAGE size, not the framed size. The frames are between 1-1.5 inches wide, so when you are planning on how large you want the framed piece to be add 2-3 inches to both image measurements for un-matted framed images and 10-12 inches to each side for frames with mattes. Acrylic pieces are printed on archival paper and mounted behind 1/4-inch acrylic mounted with a z bracket and no frame. Aluminum pieces are light, beautiful and durable and also have no frame. Aluminum prints can be mounted outside and withstand all weather conditions for decades without fading. Email me or call me with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org 615-915-9182.
