The sun went down and I was still up. The silence in this desert is deafening - it's an intense silence. It's hard to conceive of, but I think it's due to being constantly bombarded by stimulus from all directions in our day to day lives - and then being dropped into the vacuum of the desert where you can count the number of sounds you hear on one hand.

Open Edition - Print-Only
Fujicolor Crystal Archive Supreme Paper is the latest offering from Fujifilm's Crystal Archive family of color paper. Offering optimized silver halide crystals for modern laser printing, beautiful colors ranging from subtle shades of green to more vivid blues & reds, and brilliant whites with clear and expressive highlight details.
Styrene Mounted - Ready to Hang
The same Fujicolor Crystal Archive Supreme Paper used for my print-only options, mounted on smooth Sintra that flexes for hanging on curved surfaces, resists “orange-peel” effect and prevents corner-dings and will not warp. These mounted prints can be shipped with hanging mounts, or as-is allowing you to frame and display them as you choose.
Open Edition Metal Print - Ready to Hang
Metal prints are a modern way to display photographs by printing directly on sheets of aluminum, causing your images to take on a unique luminescence. They are extraordinarily vibrant with an amazing depth of color saturation. As an additional bonus, Metal Prints do not need frames. Each print includes a float-mount hanger that sets the image off the wall 1/2” and creates a natural drop-shadow when hung. Metal Prints are stunning for exhibitions or home and office decor.
Open Edition Canvas Wrap - Ready to Hang
Canvas prints are created with premium inks onto high quality canvas that are archival up to 90 years. Each print is hand-sprayed with a clear matte topcoat for UV, moisture and scratch resistance; stretched on wooden bars; backed with protective paper; and ready-mounted with hanging hardware. These prints arrive at your home or offce ready to hang.
Open Edition Acrylic Mounted
Printed on Fuji Crystal Archival paper with a Chromira printer, then face-mounted to flame polished acrylic and backed with black Sintra. A wooden cleat for hanging completes the project for a sturdy display that appears to float from the wall. Crystal-clear acrylic provides optical depth and luminosity for unmatched beauty and brilliance. Without the distraction of a frame, acrylic face mounted prints provide an uninterrupted, ultra modern display that highlights both the image and your wall.
*NOTE* Because Acrylic mounted photos are quite heavy and require special handling, I do not recommend having them shipped. However, if shipping is the only way for you to receive your photo, shipping and handling will be determined by the specifics of each order.
