the framed "waterbabies" works

the framed works arrived today

I'm pretty happy with the results
Great Basin Colour Nevada lab did an excellent job of both printing and framing

now, to work........ ! ...... taping the glass and making corners so they can travel down to New Mexico before the end of the month ...

I kind of want to keep them all ....

i guess you've got to let them go out there to see the world

"waterbabies" exhibition at Arthaus66 USA

8 images of children playing underwater in a summer pool in northern Italy will be showing at the Arthaus66 gallery New Mexico Arthaus66 found on the infamous Route 66

i spent several days lurking around in dive gear underwater in the summer of 2006 photographing waterbabies at play... i love the feeling of the giant quiet underwater room

the series is black and white , printed on Hahnemuhle photo rag paper ... limited edition print run of 25 of each image, matted with a chalk colour, acid free archival museum quality board and framed in a pale maple.

the finished and framed images are approx 23x32 inches (58 x 81cm)

show opens June 2009 and runs through August

the gallery will also be showing unframed 6 other of my works from the "100 years sleep series" these are printed on a new medium which is a metallic photo plastic ...super high end emulsion that i have just been introduced to by a fantastic lab in Nevada

these prints will be a limited edition run of 7 of each image printed at 30x40cm

under the sea.........

in Monterey bay California is the best aquarium i have ever ever been to
and that is saying something ...
i've been to many
i love the underwater world.....

...being weightless , floating, looking for mermaids and sharks

must be time for another dive ....

secret underwaterworlds
plants that walk
fish that look like plants
dark spooky caves
"big shark to eat you up at Bondi beach...."
