377 megapixels! A very high definition abstract cityscape VAST photo of the Executive Towers in Dubai at sunset; created in the United Arab Emirates by Dan Piech

Dubai at Dawn

377 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is an architect's playground. Fanciful buildings dot the landscape in every direction. This complex of residences is known as the Executive Towers. What struck me about these buildings is that every one would be the centerpiece tower of an average American city and yet they didn't particularly stand out amid the other Dubai skyscrapers.

As the sun came up over the desert and streaked between the towers, the sky filled with a wispy haze of clouds. I was on the rooftop of a nearby building and exposed more than 100 photos to stitch together into this scene. When Dubai does something, it does so in an over-the-top fashion; so much so that every corner of the city is a cliché of tacky excess and architectural melodrama. To evoke a similar feel, I decided to wrap the photo into a semi-sphere.

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.
