Never before have I been anywhere so desolate and remote as the Arabian Desert in Saudi Arabia. Famed for the exploits of Lawrence of Arabia in the first world war, the area is truly unspoiled. With an area of 233,000 square miles, it is the fifth-largest desert in the world stretching from Yemen to the Persian Gulf and from Oman to Jordan. The most amazing thing is if you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, you can literally drive off the road for thousands of miles—if you don't get stuck. Up and down dunes the only restriction being one's lack of courage to foray further and further from civilization. Littered with the occasional Bedouin and thousands of free-roaming camels, when you stop the car, all you can hear is silence. No Planes, no trains, no automobiles...nothing. The Bedouin have a phrase coined from this experience; "Only in complete silence will you hear the desert". So true.
This is a warm-tone black & white image with subtle, warm hues.
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.
Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.
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 technology. Learn more.
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.
