The Reservoir Skyline: Slate

215 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Central Park, New York City
Central Park, the first landscaped public park in the U.S., is also the most visited urban park in the country. A sprawling retreat amidst one of the densest metropolitan regions on earth, its characteristic beauty is unmistakable.

The middle of the park is home to the man-made "reservoir" - one of the largest bodies of water in New York City. The view of the midtown skyline from its northern shore is remarkable. In one scene, you can capture the calm water, the lush Central Park flora, and the magnificent midtown skyline.

The impressive buildings that make up this skyline on the southern end of the park have some of the highest property values in the world, earning the neighborhood the nickname "Billionaires' Row." From this vantage point, the famous neighborhood, replete with sharp angles and high-contrast lighting, appears to be organically growing out of the curving lines and soft lighting of the Central Park forest.

I created this VAST photo on a crisp autumn day without a cloud in the sky. Despite the beautiful autumnal colors, I chose to use black and white because of the beautifully stark simplicity of the scene. The negative space of the empty sky beckons the skyline to climb higher.

Note: This VAST photo works particularly well as a wallpaper for dramatic interior design transformations.

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.
