Josephine Pools (Landscape)
"Josephine Pools" was photographed at Josephine Falls in the Wooroonooran National Park North Queensland Australia.
Famous for the clarity of the water. This stream flows from the tops of the highest free-standing mountain in Australia. All granite rock ... leaving the water highly oxygenated and pure. The log in the foreground is covered in moss, with patterns swirls in the wood grain. The granite rock with patches lichen.
Set in the thick heavy rainforest of the tropics ...

Standard sizes: 180x135cm, 160x120cm, 120x90cm.
Printing and framing:
Printing: Printed with pigment inks on silver-based photographic paper, then mounted under Polycarbonate acrylic glass presenting each image crisp and clear. Most people when first viewing are convinced that they are lit from behind with their inherent 'luminosity'. Polycarbonate is a totally transparent material with very little reflection but is also virtually unbreakable.
Lighting: People often ask if they should instal lighting for the images. And I recommend not to, at least for the first few months. For how the images hold light is simply wonderful. I often refer to them more so as gems or jewels in the way that they hold light. Especially in very low light they become holographic by nature. And the tones shift as the sun rises or sets ... It is very attractive. But if you do wish to install, perhaps highlight just the midsection with a warm tone light.
Float-frame: Provided on the back of each is an aluminium float-frame. This frame presents the photographs off the wall as if it is floating. It is very elegant. Then included is a matching hanging rail that simply is screwed level onto the wall. And interlocks perfectly with the float-frame providing a totally secure hanging system.
Archival qualities: Pigment inks have incredible archival quality. And combined with the acrylic glass, of which is 100% UV resistant, there is no chance of fading or discolouration. The Australian sun is particularly harsh and though I do not recommend continual direct sun all work is guaranteed with a lifetime replacement (as an interior art (starting 2021)).
Investment: The Art is presented as a limited edition collection. And once sold out is finished and complete. No longer available. This creates an investment opportunity, with the work continually increasing in value. And together with their timeless appeal and the archival quality ... makes it a most attractive investment.
