This photograph was taken in Pompeii, Italy. The ghost images in this collage were born close to this ancient city. Let me introduce them to you. They are my Father at age 13 at the lower left and my great Aunt and Uncles. I’ve created this piece from the many pictures I have of family.  My motivation for  this collage image was to connect the past with the present.

 

ABOUT THIS SPECIAL EDITION

PHOTOMONTAGE PRINTED ON CANVAS

Much care is taken in the shooting, preparation, and printing of these fine art photographs. The prints are created with a state-of-the-art inkjet printer using archival pigmented inks.  These printers are capable of reproducing fine detail and rich saturated colors. They are said to last over 100 years. The size of this photo montage is 20x30. These canvas prints are signed on the back.numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. They also have the artists inspiration and story about the photograph attached to the back. There are only 25 canvas prints made in this edition.

CUSTOM BUILT FRAME

 These contemporary art photographs are mounted on solid faced wood frames. The frame has been sealed and protected before the canvas is stretched and gallery wrapped around it. After the canvas is stretched one final coat is sprayed on to seal and protect it.  This type of frame gives a solid protective back for your canvas fine art print. I find these solid centered frames much more durable than the soft centered canvas wrap that we most often see. These canvas wrapped prints are ready to hang on your wall.

Walls Of The Past

This is one of the first photomontages that I created. It was inspired after finding a shoebox full of old family photos. The ghostly images are all relatives and lived in or near the city of Naples, Italy.  On the left, and you may notice some resemblance, this is my Dad at age 13. His brother is on his right and above them are my Aunt and Uncle.

When my wife and I traveled to Italy, we visited Pompeii, which is an ancient city near Naples. The site was very well preserved with frescos still visible on the walls, and plenty of structures and buildings still standing. The background photograph was taken here in Pompeii, which was not very far from where my relatives lived.

I felt the need to create an image that had some personal meaning to me, and one that connected the past with the present. 

Several times a year, I exhibit my work at various galleries and at my home gallery. The first time I presented this piece at one of my shows, it sold!  I was ecstatic. Several other images have also sold, and I now limit the original editions to only 25.

The antique photographs were scanned into my computer, and I now use Photoshop for many of my darkroom techniques. Though I will never forget the days of developer and fixer, I have fond memories of watching images appear magically in front of my eyes.

This was my first experience scanning vintage photos to be used in conjunction with pictures of today.  I have since scanned many old photographs and have created a whole body of work with them. I have many in different stages of completion and really enjoy creating them.

The experience I had creating “Walls Of The Past” has led me to develop many other ghostly images, and some are a little spooky.
