Laminaria digitata II
Providing the costume designer with kelp from our fjord has been the photographer's task after the first batch was bought from a commercial provider harvesting in the Atlantic Ocean. In this picture, there is also a strand of sun-bleached kelp from a friend. Woven together, this is an image of a cape connecting people, and with our local environment. What's cool is that even when dry, the costume keeps –more or less– its form, still influenced by humidity in the air - still alive in new waves, so to speak.
Printed with pigment ink (Epson) by the photographer on 100% cotton paper (Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta), this is one of twelve pictures in the series "Of the eyes he made window panes". The combination of pigment and cotton should in itself be one of the most durable media, but the surface has not been treated further and should be kept behind UV protection for optimal longevity. The image is presented with a white border, and signed on the front, below the print. There is also a hologram badge in verso with a matching Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artist, supplied in the shipment.
The print is edited in photoshop, but not a composite or a "look like a painting"-filtered image.
40 x 50 cm / 15.7 x 19.7 inches. Limited edition of 5. Not mounted.
