Awaken: Red

39 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO

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.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
