The long, dry season, late June, Maasai Mara, Kenya. It was another sun drenched day in June. There was not a breeze either. At mid – morning I spotted this 15 feet tall bull giraffe walking with all the dignity in the world. Then, as I saw this giraffe run I imagined it lashing out at a lion and killing it with one blow of its feet. I also imagined it was trying to fly. It conjured up a tremendous image of freedom – a symbol of what the Mara means to me.
The print is made to order. Once an order is placed, I liaise with a top photography printing lab in London which has state of the art equipment and talented printers. I work in partnership with a specific printer at the lab who knows my work and together we ensure a finished professional product. The lab uses a top of the range lambda printer and the print is made on an Ilford fibre based black and white silver gelatin photographic paper. The paper is resin-coated and the master print I hold has a consistent and neutral image tone. The tonal range is also wide with strong blacks and subtle highlight details. Please allow 2 weeks from order to dispatch.
This photographic print with a black frame on a white wall should look aesthetically pleasing. Given its size, it would make for easy viewing from both near and far.
