Imbued with the captivating energy that artists Steph Mantis and Dan Piech bring to their work, the Awaken series of VAST photos represents a collaboration of creative and technical mastery. The series explores the artistic beauty of microscopic selenite crystals photographed at extraordinarily high resolutions using specialty equipment and innovative techniques.

Selenite (Latin for "moonstone") has unique molecular properties that produce elegant crystalline structures and brilliant refractive properties. When combined with Mantis and Piech's meticulously constructed setup of lights, colored filters, microscopes, and cameras, these properties produce stunning imagery that elevates the mood and captures the imagination.

Designed to be showcased as sets, the rich colors and powerful compositional language used throughout the series usher viewers to discover tranquility from chaos, beauty from the unseen, and meaning from the abstract.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.

VAST DISPLAYS
