I am pleased to announce the release of the twenty fourth Alain Briot Print of the Month Collection photograph: Abandoned Mining Equipment, Jerome, Arizona. This photograph was created during our February 2005 Weekend Workshop to Jerome, Arizona. This workshop focused on Personal Style and Composition.
I was fascinated by the contrast between the rusty metal of this abandoned mining equipment and the vivacity and movement of the vegetation that is growing onto it. It is already the beginning of Spring in Arizona, and this new twig found a propitious hanging place wrapping itself around the old chain. I was fascinated by the relationship between the living, growing plant and the rusty metal. The contrast between life and death, so to speak, between organic and static, between a plant that changes shape as it grows and equipment that has looked the same for months.
I originally created this image in color. However, once I returned to my studio I realized that color took away from what I was trying to express, away from the message and the graphic quality of the image. So I printed it in black and white
To emphasize the quality of the print, which is stunning (be sure to look at the large detail, below), I decide to mat this photograph in a museum quality, off white mat. This is a hinged mat, with the backing board the same quality as the mat, done exactly the way photographs in my Navajoland Museum Print of the Month are matted. It looks stunning.
Detail showing the sharpness and print and matting quality as well as can be done on the Web.
In any case you are covered by my 100% warranty.
This photograph is available framed and unframed. It is hand signed on the mat and the print. The frame is a handmade Mahogany Finish Frame. The moulding is truly magnificent and does emphasize the beauty of this image. The photograph I took of the moulding show very closely how beautiful this presentation is. However, these pieces looks much better in reality than a web photograph can show! You just won't believe your eyes when you receive yours. All the framing materials used are Museum Quality, archival supplies. All my work is guaranteed for life in regard to fading and damage caused by framing materials.
Framed pieces are delivered in a stunning mahogany finish frame.
