About the Photograph:
This photograph was made on an expedition around the archipelago of Svalbard in the High Arctic. Having spotted this large male polar bear from our ship, sleeping in the distance, we decided to wait on him to wake up, for over 8 hours, before deciding to call it a night. We did so however with a promise from our guides that they would wake us up in case the bear woke up.
And wake up he did, in the middle of the night, and off we went into our inflatable zodiac boats! With round the clock daylight during May, we had an amazing time photographing the bear from a safe, yet close distance in the wild! He swam to cross a part of the fjord and when he came out, he looked back, almost as if posing for this frame!
The sense of thrill and adventure and being one with nature in a wild, remote part of the planet make this photograph special for me.
About the Artwork:
The photograph is printed directly onto a premium Fine Art Canvas - which has a tight weave and a consistent texture - using archival, wide format, inkjet printers; a semi-gloss laminate gives it a slightly reflective finish. Canvas prints are suitable for most lighting situations and also have a painterly feel due to the distinctive texture of canvas.
Premium Gallery Wraps are beautifully hand-crafted, with the canvas stretched and mounted on wooden bars, 1.5 inch on each side. The Gallery Wrap arrives ready to hang. Poplar wood is used for the wrap which is Lacey Act compliant. A part of the canvas will wrap around the sides of the mount. I will confirm with you whether you would prefer a part of the image itself to wrap, or have a black or white border, once the order is placed.
The artwork is printed and prepared by expert printing professionals, packaged in a specially designed cardboard box, and shipped directly from the lab. The packaging boxes are easy to recycle and reuse and are made under the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI).
A Certificate of Authenticity with my signature and the Limited Edition #, along with a signed label (which can be affixed to the artwork), is mailed to you separately, as soon as the artwork is delivered, and accepted by you.
The price of each of the options will increase as fewer Limited Edition Prints remain available.
I have chosen to partner with a reputed Print Laboratory based in the USA after evaluating multiple vendors basis reviews on quality and service as well as their commitment to environmental responsibility. I have checked the quality of the lab's output, specifically on material that is used for this artwork.
Thus, all orders ship from the USA, straight from the lab. The Shipping section shows the dispatch location as India, because that is where I am based, however, all shipping costs reflect origin as USA.
The secondary images which show the artwork in context of a living room are simulated using tools from the internet. The images showing the edge and back of the bamboo panel are taken from the print lab's website. These are for illustrative purposes only and not to scale.
Important Note for International (non-US) Customers:
Please select a region/continent if your country is not specifically listed under Shipping Options. If you are not sure of which region to select, please contact me and I will be happy to help.
International customers (non-US) are responsible for any customs fees, duties and import taxes that may be applicable. These are not included in the cost of shipping or handling of your order, since they vary widely by country. Please check with your local customs agency for details on estimated costs.
