90 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of K2 in the Himalaya Mountains; black and white fine art mountain photo created by Doug Kofsky in Pakistan

K2 (8611m): B&W

90 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Godwin Austen Glacier, Pakistan
I wanted the biggest shot I could get of the baddest mountain of them all - K2. Huffing along on the way to Broad Peak Base Camp I had taken the shot over and over again - so I decided to experiment with shooting the south face in sections and merging the pieces in Photoshop.

The result is what you see - 23 images merged together - an attempt to look closely at the terrain comprising, in my opinion, the most significant mountain face of them all - in its history, its scale, and its aesthetic. From this vantage point, many routes up the mountain are visible: the Abruzzi Ridge, the South Face Route, the West Ridge, the Magic Line.

This photo is dedicated to Tadeusz Piotrowski and Wojciech Wroz - Polish pioneers on two of these unbelievable routes of inspiration who were lost on the way back to earth.

Print only

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.

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. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
