Title: Body language
Location: Sydney, Australia (Hyde Park)
A catch of the light and embraced in shadow, these two people sat on the bench across from me one afternoon in Hyde Park and I wondered what their story was as the dappled sunlight wrapped them in deep shadow. There are always stories in the way the light plays around snippets of conversations and pulls them into their hearts, and this one happened to be immortalised in a photo. What does it say to you?
Printed on Giclée Hahnemühle Pearl
What print sizes are available? What about borders?
Currently available are metric print sizes, which run:
- A5 – 210x148mm
- A4 – 297x210mm
- A3 – 420x297mm
- A2 – 594x420mm
- A1 – 841-594mm
Each print comes with a 5% border, so for each print size, that will be different. For example, the border for the A5 print is 10.5×7.5mm or slightly less than half an inch by a quarter of an inch.
US 8x10 prints are available, they will be processed in the next 4-6 weeks for sale.
What kind of paper are your photographs printed on?
All prints are printed on archival quality paper using C-Type or Giclee printing. Favoured papers include Fuji Matt, Epson Semi-Gloss and Hahnemühle Pearl. Details of the paper type will be included for each print.
Can I buy the print from you framed?
At the moment, no, though the printer I work with (The Print Space) is planning on releasing this in 2022.
How long will my photographic print last?
Both C-Type and Giclee papers are archival quality and made to last. When displayed in average daylight conditions properly (framed, under glass, with pH neutral mounting paper), C-Type has a lifespan of about 40 years, Giclee about 80. In dark storage in an archival box, C-Type sits at about 80 years, Giclee, about 200. Of course, this is in ideal conditions. Factors that could affect your photographic lifepan include:
- Exposure to high heat sources
- Exposure to bright light sources
- Exposure to moisture through humidity
- Atmospheric pollutants
- Storage conditions
