This sensational piece by @delfinaemmanuel was part of Landscape:Islands at The Ceramic House in 2016, photographed by @bgmfoto2 Delfina first exhibited here in 2013, the year we won Best Artists Open House in the Brighton Festival. Love her work! A photo a day from the archive.
Playing in the archive these past few weeks has gotten the brain matter moving.
I’ve been enjoying revisiting these old prints and playing with combinations.
I have been given a small opportunity to print some of these with the factory that’s printing my fabrics for houndtees, so I guess I’m asking if any of you would be interested in buying some of these old prints?
They will be redrawn by me and digitally printed in Melbourne on a beautiful crisp poplin 100% cotton. Limited edition selvedge notes of the era and history of the fabric.
It would need to be preorder and it would be in a very limited quantity.
Roughly $8.50 per qtr
Please let me know if there is any interest and I can get the ball rolling.
Today’s photo reminds me that spring is round the corner. A lovely bird’s eye view of the mosaic steps in the Ceramic Garden shot by Jim Holden for @sussexlifemag feature in 2017 A photo a day from the archive.
This photo was taken in 1893, a couple of years after the opening of the Rijksmuseum. The room depicted was called the Waterloo Gallery. The funny thing is, the artworks displayed in this gallery were quite modern at that time.
In this archive photo from my 2004 Westpac deployment, despite not having the qualifications for aerial photography, I found myself airborne in an SH-60F Seahawk from the "Black Knights" of Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Four (HS-4) during a photo mission to get photos of the nuclear powered USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). I shot this photo from the open door as we followed the lead helicopter back to the ship at the end of the flight with a 300mm and it was as full frame as you could possibly get. Just the slightest bit of the ship being cut off would ruin this shot. Luckily that didn't happen!
