Artwork description:

A few years ago I lived in Portugal. During this time I made several photography trips to London, no doubt photographing the capital more than I do now even though I am based close to London. One client was interested in panoramic images of London and so I chose recognisable London views. Possibly one of the most photographed views in London is the image of St Paul’s Cathedral through the Millennium Bridge. On a cold December evening, close to midnight, I set aside sufficient time to capture the shot I planned which would allow plenty of time to catch the last train from Waterloo station. However, as so often is the case, the weather conditions changed, but for the better surprisingly. I had to make a decision; catch the last train or keep photographing and find an alternative way home. A fog formed over the River Thames and moisture condensed on the glass panes of the Millennium Bridge. Without sounding too dramatic, the effect was magical and the fog quickly encompassed the City. There was a five-minute window where St Paul’s was just visible through the fog, and I captured the image here. It has become the image of which I am most proud. I missed the last train despite my best intentions to run a four-minute mile.

This piece of art is a limited edition of 10. This number is the total that will be printed of this photograph. The size and medium will be the same for the whole print run.

The diasec medium is an established and patented process to face-mount photographs. The front of a C Type photograph is bonded directly to Perspex and then reinforced with a sheet of aluminium (i.e. the photograph is sandwiched between the clear Perspex and an aluminium sheet). An aluminium subframe is then attached to the back of the panel which can then be hung on the wall using a supplied rail. The artwork will appear to ‘float’ off the wall. The result is a clearer and sharper image with an almost HD quality.

It is not possible to sign the front of the artwork directly since there is no border. A sticker will be attached to the rear and certificate of authenticity sent separately.

Delivery is listed for UK, however, artwork can be arranged for worldwide delivery. Depending on the destination, any applicable import taxes can be paid prior to export or on import. I have previously sent art to Europe, Asia and the US.

Materials used:

Diasec: C Type photograph face-mounted onto clear Perspex and backed with an aluminium sheet
