Valensole Plateau I

191 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Valensole, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

Sunset on the Valensole Plateau during summer is an amazing experience, especially when a small front is moving through the area. As the last bit of light grazes across the flower blossoms, it creates shadows emphasizing the undulating terrain and the rows of lavender reaching to the horizon. At the same time, the low-angle light skimming across our atmosphere illuminates the clouds in the colors of the fields below.

One of the things I love about southern France, especially Provence, is these stone farm sheds that are common in the fields. While they’re man-made structures, the materials from which they’re made come from the ground on which they sit. This aspect allows them to aesthetically blend in with their surroundings and create visual harmony between man and nature. Having a background in both photography and geography, I am constantly searching for scenes that illustrate the interaction of humans with the environment.

This time-blended VAST image was created by combining tilt and shift optical movements on a medium format technical camera with panorama stitching. The result is an image that is not only colorful but sharp from the rocks and flower blossoms in the foreground to the building in the distance. I intentionally changed the plane of focus to blur out the elements behind the building. This helps the structure standout from the background and further puts emphasis on the rest of the foreground elements.

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.
