Artist's description:

Everything can change; and it will. Rather than living in fear, let this remind you to live each day as your best self, and to prioritize the things that truly matter.

On a drive to the coast one summer day, my love and I pulled over to give my over-heating car a short break. Not even five minutes after getting back on the road, we came upon a head-on collision that had happened only minutes ago. Two people were badly injured, and we were there with a third as he took his last breath.

When we had done all we could do, we found a place by the river to decompress. It could have been us. It could be you tomorrow. Every time I look at this photo from that day, I am reminded of the man who lost his life, and that I should live today in a way that will make me proud whenever my last day comes.

Limited edition of 50 silver halide color prints, made using traditional RA-4 chemistry on specialty photo paper that is embedded with pearly mica crystals. This process creates a nearly 3-dimensional visual experience of extreme tonal range, color saturation, and sharp detail, all in an archival print medium. Each print is hand signed and numbered by the artist, and is sold with a certificate of authenticity which is also signed and numbered.

The first 25 prints in each edition are sold at a fixed base price. Each print thereafter is sold at an incrementally increased price, reflecting the growing scarcity of the work, and also increasing the value of the first 25 prints sold.

Image size is 28x42 inches, with a white border extending to 30x45 inches for signature and optimal framing. Artwork ships unframed.

NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I have set one international shipping rate for most countries outside of the US, however some locations may be available at a lower rate. Please inquire if you are concerned about the shipping cost.

Smaller prints are available on standard photo paper or aluminum from $55 - please inquire.
