Big City Lights

1,160 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
New York, New York

I often find a strange irony in photographing a city skyline from another state. The view of New York City from New Jersey is to me one of the most expansive so I purposely booked a hotel right at my chosen location to make sure I could get just the right shot. After 2 failed attempts due to high winds and rain I got lucky on the 3rd try with little to no wind, which is such an important factor when shooting at such a long focal length as the slightest gust can blur the image. There are 112 images that make up the final image and each location has to be shot when the camera is completely stable whilst also taking into consideration how long it will take before the light changes too much. It took it’s time but the end result was well worth it.

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.
