The Documentary Group of the RPS has included a small write-up of my Wine Doors project in the latest issue of their magazine, the Decisive Moment. Also included are two of my MA course peers - Alexandra Prescott and Daniel Simon; both highly talented and creative individuals.
Very excited to be showing more of the Wine Doors of Florence project in two locations in London - the Wine Place wine bars in Covent Garden and Kensington. This is a collaborative display with Robbin Gheesling, a researcher into the provenance and history of these little historical remnants.
Set up for this long running display was yesterday… the white painted brick walls are the Covent Garden branch.
The Folio Presentation Box containing 14 prints of the Wine Doors of Florence - perfect for framing or a changing clip frame display - is available for purchase direct. Fourteen prints for £100.
The box contains the following images, in addition to a set of cards detailing the location of each and plotting them on a map of Florence.
Since the exhibition I have received a couple of queries regarding the two large prints displayed on the lectern and the kneeler. The square print, with is superbly detailed textures, was taken on Borgo Degli Albizi. It is available only in a limited edition run of 5 prints, one of which has been sold.
The atmospheric, sunbeam image, I have to admit to being a bit vague about its location. It is a highly regarding image but again only available in a limited edition run of 5 prints. Both available for £150 mounted but unframed. Please contact direct.
Limited to just 24 numbered boxes the Folio Presentation box is a bargain at just £100. For this you receive 24 prints (A4 size) plus a set of cards showing the location of each door, a little statement about the wine doors and, linking these historical remnants to the modern age, GPS coordinates.
Available to order direct
Many thanks to those you visited my little pop-up exhibition in St. Peter’s Church, Wallingford.
For those who didn’t make it to the exhibition the images that were displayed are shown here. Plus those that were available as a free postcard. Prints are available to order from PicFair.
A few revised words that comprise the exhibitions ‘artist statement’ for display next weekend.
The final preparations are completed for the exhibition. Easels are ‘rustically’ painted, all the prints are mounted on card and the big two (the anchor/statement) photos have arrived. Wine will be served from 6PM on the Saturday… some interview slots for the Saturday morning, private showing, are still available.
The final edit of the photos is done. Those destined for the limited edition folio presentation box have also been finalised, mapped and recorded on the accompanying info sheets.
Work on the Easter Weekend exhibition is now underway with display issues to be resolved as the venue, an historic church, is protected building and cant be damaged in any form. Details on the Wine Doors of Florence page.
